Joint Base Cape Cod small-arms ranges : lead and antimony batch-reaction study
Barker, Amanda J.; Beal, Samuel A.; Clausen, Jay L.
The results and documentation in this report summarize work supporting the Joint Base Cape Cod Camp Edwards Small-Arms Ranges (JBCC SARs) assessment of the potential for lead (Pb) and antimony (Sb) to migrate in soil and soil solutions. Batch studies were performed in an effort to interpret field results for metal concentrations at Camp Edwards SARs and to determine potential remediation strategies that limit both Pb and Sb. The batch study showed phosphate and iron treatments had minimal to no impact on Pb and Sb dissolution. However, the lime treatment significantly decreased the dissolution of Sb while increasing the dissolution of Pb. Dissolved metal concentrations decreased over the course of the 48-hour experiment regardless of treatment.
