Abstract : This report was prepared to aid in implementing the Air Force Restoration Program at Reese AFB. It is DoD policy to identify and fully evaluate suspected problems associated with past hazardous waste management practices on DoD facilities and to control the migration of hazardous constituents from such facilities that could endanger health and welfare. Major findings include: (1) Since 1941, many hazardous and potentially hazardous wastes have been generated by industrial shop operations at Reese AFB. (2) Fire training exercises have provided a means of disposal of waste Avgas, oils and lubricants, and miscellaneous combustible materials since at least the 1950's. and (3) Landfills and land spreading areas have been used for waste disposal since the base was constructed. Most of the materials disposed have been construction and domestic wastes, although some hazardous wastes were reportedly landfilled in the past. Review of the comprehensive data base assembled for this study resulted in identification of 36 sites of potential contamination at Reese AFB. Ten of these 36 preliminary sites were ranked using the Hazard Assessment Rating Methodology (HARM) based on their potential for migration of hazardous constituents.
