Abstract : This document summarizes the results of the field work conducted in December 1994 using Laser Induced Fluorescence-Plezo Cone Penetration Technology (LIF-CPT) tests, and conventional soil borings. The purpose of this site characterization effort was to identify a potential area to perform treatability studies with eight enhanced source removal technologies. The free product hydrocarbon has migrated primarily to the west of the Chemical Disposal Pits. LIF-CPT is an efficient way to quickly characterize the extent of a contamination plume when the contamination of total petroleum hydrocarbons (TPH) is in excess of 100 mg/Kg. The most efficient method for obtaining soil samples at Hill AFB OU1 is conventional drilling. CPT equipped with Raman Spectroscopy has limited capabilities for detecting TCE at OU1 because of interference with hydrocarbon fluorescence. (AN)
