Abstract : The Buckley ANGB Phase II, Stage I field evaluation of the IRP investigated five sites through drilling and sampling nine borings and four monitor wells. Bedrock and alluvial aquifers are of interest in the Buckley ANGB area, particularly since they both provide local and regional water supplies. The bedrock aquifers provide water for the base, but the shallower alluvial aquifers are used within a mile of the base boundaries. The alluvial aquifers, particularly the aquifer associated with East Toll Gate Creek, are vulnerable to contamination. Ground water contamination has been found at Buckley ANGB. Cadmium levels exceeded the primary drinking water standards at the landfill and oil pit zone. TDS, TOX, TOX, and phenolics were also elevated at this site. At Site FT-3, the soil is contaminated, as evidenced by a strong fuel odor and elevated TOX and TOC.
