Abstract : The report presents the information and findings for ground-water and those media expected to affect groundwater (soil, sediment, surface water). A baseline risk assessment was performed to evaluate the possibility of human health and ecological effects in receptors potentially subject to exposure to chemicals contamination detected in the groundwater at LBAD. Based on groundwater flow and base activities, the site was divided into northern and southern sections for risk assessment purposes. Based on a conservative risk evaluation, both the groundwater in the northern and the southern sections of LBAD possess potentially unacceptable levels of human health or ecological risk.
