Abstract : A Preliminary Assessment Screening (PAS) for the Joliet Army Ammunition Plant (JOAAP) was initiated by the U.S. Army Environmental Center (USAEC), Aberdeen Proving Ground, Maryland 21010. This PAS evaluates the existing facility and environmental conditions to determine and document whether hazardous or toxic substances were used, released, stored in excess of one year, or disposed within JOAAP. This report evaluates portions of the USDA parcel (the 'agriculture parcel') appropriate for transfer at this time as identified by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (USEPA) (RBOW01). Issues are identified and findings are discussed in Section 4. A summary of findings is presented in Section 5 of this report. Required actions and specific future use restrictions will be presented in a separate Statement of Conditions (SOC). All boundaries and areas discussed or shown in this report should be considered approximate as no land survey has been conducted.
