Abstract : Wastewater and hazardous waste surveys were conducted at Homestead AFB by the USAFOEHL to address possible problems with oil/water separators and to evaluate the hazardous waste management program. The analytical results from the wastewater survey showed mercury, silver, benzenes, chlorinated benzenes, fuel components, and various purgable halocarbons above the discharge limit presented in the Dade County Code 24-11. Characteristic hazardous waste results showed the separator located outside the jet engine test cell contained hazardous waste. The pH of wastewater discharged from the base filling station separator was out of compliance with the Dade County discharge limits. The results of the hazardous waste survey showed the base hazardous waste program to be running smoothly. The accumulation site managers have a good understanding of the overall waste management program. Keywords: Pollution abatement; Water pollution. (KT)
