Abstract : Personnel from the Armstrong Laboratory Water Quality Branch conducted a wastewater characterization and surface water infiltration survey for the 28th Bombardment and 99th Trainer Wing, Ellsworth Air Force Base, South Dakota, from 18 to 29 October 1993. The scope of the survey was to sample the wastewater throughout the base to determine if significant pollutant concentrations existed in the wastewater discharge. The wastewater did have detectable levels of organic and inorganic compounds in it however, these levels were within the current permitted parameters. The surface water infiltration survey indicated an excess of fifteen sanitary manholes contained perforated covers at or below the local gradient. Some of these locations drained between 0.5 to 1.0 acres. This surface water infiltration would exceed the plant capacity and flush pollutants through the treatment plant. jg
