Abstract : This report presents the results of the Community Environmental Response Facilitation Act (CERFA) investigation conducted by The Technology Corporation (TETC) at Jefferson Proving Ground, a U.S. Government property selected for closure by the Base Realignment and Closure, (BRAC) Commission under Public Laws 100-526 and 101-510. Under CERFA (Public Law 102-426), Federal agencies are required to identify real property that can be immediately reused and redeveloped. Satisfying this objective requires the identification of real property where -no hazardous substances or petroleum products, regulated by the Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation, and Liability Act (CERCLA), were stored for one year or more, known to have been released, or disposed. The Jefferson Proving Ground is an approximately 56,156-acre site located in Jennings, Ripley, and Jefferson Counties, Indiana, approximately 7 miles north of Madison, Indiana. The installation's primary mission is to perform production and post production tests of both ammunition components and final ammunition products. Propellants, mines, cartridge cases, artillery projectiles, mortar rounds, grenades, tank ammunition, bombs, boosters, and rockets have been tested at Jefferson Proving Ground. Environmentally significant operations may be divided into activities related to munitions testing activities, hazardous substances/waste associated with facility maintenance activities, and miscellaneous solid waste such as office trash.
