Abstract : The 151 buildings and structures included in the polychlorinated biphenyl (PCB) inventory at the Rocky Mountain Arsenal (RMA) are divided into two groups. Group 1(62) included buildings and structures are located predominantly in the Rail Classification Yard (Sections 3 and 4). However, some of the Group I buildings are located in the South Plants (Section 2) and the administration areas of Sections 2, 3, 4, 11, 34, and 35. Group 11(89) buildings and structures are situated primarily in the South Plants (Sections 1, 2, 34, 36), but some are located in Sections 6 and 31. These buildings and structures were investigated under Task 3, PCB Inventory of RMA Buildings, in the spring of 1990. A total of 20 soil, liquid, and asphalt samples were collected. All samples from Group 1 buildings and structures were taken from Building 621B since this was the only building/structure showing both a history of past and present transformer storage, and evidence of possible PCB contamination. A total of 13 soil samples were collected to a depth of six inches; five asphalt samples were drilled to a depth of one inch; and two liquid samples were obtained. -BKA
