Abstract : The U.S. Army Environmental Center (USAEC), Aberdeen Proving Ground, Maryland, directed EARTH TECH to complete a biota sampling at the Woodbridge Research Facility (WRF) installation. This sampling was conducted as part of the U.S. Army Installation Restoration Program (IRP) with all specific activities and project responsibilities as defined in contract number DAAA15-91-D-0009, Delivery Order 0014. Project-specific administration and technical supervision of this delivery order are provided by USAEC-Base Closure Division. A Site Inspection (SI) was conducted to characterize and evaluate potentially contaminated sites at WRF. The SI identified several data gaps which included the lack of information on potential human health risks from the consumption of fish and on the potential for contaminants found at the study areas to impact aquatic life. EARTH TECH was contracted to collect, store, and deliver biota samples from the waters on and surrounding WRF. The samples will be analyzed and included in a risk assessment under a separate contract. Guidance documents from the Virginia Department of Environmental Quality (VDEQ) were followed to conduct this sampling (VDEQ, 1994).
