Abstract : This final report documents the Phase I contamination survey of site 36-12, a munitions storage yard used during the early 1950's. Twenty-three samples from 7 borings were analyzed for volatile and semivolatile organics and metals with separate analyses for As, Hg, and DBCP. Cu, Cr, As, Hg, Pb, and Zn were detected above their respective indicator ranges. With the exception of the superficial samples containing Hg, the other metal concentrations appear to be indicative of naturally occurring levels. The Hg contamination will be further investigated under the section 36-UNC survey since these values appear to be related to windblown contamination in the nonsource areas of this section. A Phase II program is not recommended for site 36-12 since the expected organic compounds were not detected. Appendices: Chemical names, Phase I chemical data, comments and responses. -BKA
