Abstract: A geophysical investigation was conducted at the Dye Burial Grounds (DBG), Naval Surface Warfare Center, Crane Division, Crane, IN. An Initial Assessment Study (lAS) study team reported in 1983 that an estimated 50,000 lb of various dyes and dye contaminated materials were deposited in open trenches at the DBG between 1952 and 1964. Three main trenches, estimated to be 10 ft wide, 50 ft long, and 6 ft deep, reportedly included magnesium, boxes and rags contaminated with dyes, and about 60 drums of dyes. Precise location of the burial trenches was not available from records. The potentially toxic or carcinogenic dyes have reportedly overflowed the trenches during heavy rains. The objective of the investigation was to detect and delineate anomalies indicating the locations of buried objects or disturbed zones associated with past hazardous waste burial at the DBG. The locations of these wastes are needed so they can be excavated for removal to a permanent treatment or disposal site. Electromagnetic (EM), magnetic, and ground penetrating radar (GPR) surveys were conducted at the DBG to meet this objective. Anomalies from each survey method were mapped an interpretations of their cause were tabulated. Also noted in the report is the priority in which the anomalous areas should be further investigated.
