Description: Miscellaneous Paper
Abstract: Site 16 was investigated with subsurface borings to establish the geological setting and to evaluate the possible presence of buried waste and contaminated ground water. Magnetic and conductivity surveys suggested only one unexplained weak anomaly within an area of possible waste burial in the past. Three new monitoring wells together with two placed in 1981 surround the suspect area on the down-gradient side. Analysis of water samples taken one month and two months after installation of these wells revealed no parameters exceeding Federal primary drinking water standards. The concentration of chromium in the ground water is substantially lower than previously reported. The site is considered to be free of serious contamination.
