Abstract : The U.S. Air Force Academy proper contains 18,235 acres and occupies most of the T12S and R67W, R66W area. Farrish Memorial Recreation Annex consists of 655 additional acres and is located in the mountainous Rampart Range. As a result of the HARM rating, recommendations were developed for follow-on investigations to determine if contamination has occurred. Among the sites recommended for further investigation are: (1) JP-4 Spill -- In 1983 an unknown quantity of JP-4 was spilled from a partially buried tank located behind a retaining wall. (2) Farrish Sites -- A landfill and a dredged material disposal site have been identified at the Farrish Memorial Recreation Area. (3) Fire Training Area -- The Fire Protection Training Area has been identified as a site for additional investigation because the site is in close proximity to a stream and to ground water. (4) Dredged Material Disposal Site -- This site was used for disposal of sediment from non-potable reservoir 1. (5) Landfills -- Landfills 1 and 2 have been identified as sites because of the wide variety of wastes that may have been disposed. (6) Digester Sludge Disposal Site -- This site has been used for disposal of digester sludge from the Academy Sanitary Sewage Treatment Plant.
