Abstract : The need to identify and assess the potential hazards created by the presence of toxic substances in the environment at RMA has been recognized, and efforts are underway for interim containment of off-post migration. A comprehensive survey will be initiated to gather and analyze all necessary information which would enable a rational assessment of the degree of contamination and provide the data base needed for the design of remedial measures. The purpose of this study is to provide the guidelines for soil and water sampling procedures and field data gathering and recording protocols to be used in the comprehensive survey at RMA. BKA
