Abstract : Fifty-five storm sewer systems and three surface water bodies were evaluated as part of the Base Realignment and Closure Environmental Evaluation (BRAC EE) at Fort Devens. The purpose of this evaluation was to identify potential sources of contamination that were not identified through previous investigations. This evaluation also provides data on potential contaminant pathways that can be used to supplement other investigations/evaluations at Fort Devens. The 55 storm sewer systems and three surface water bodies were located on the Main and North Posts of Fort Devens. Each storm sewer system was route verified to identify the system's flow location and direction. All AREEs, Study Areas (SAs), and Areas of Concern (AOCs) associated with the storm systems were identified. Sediment and surface water samples were collected in locations that best captured potential upstream sources of contaminants.
