The installation's mission is to maintain fighter aircraft on continuous peacetime air defense alert to preserve U.S. air sovereignty. During wartime, the mission is to mobilize personnel and equipment for deployment to designated locations and to use air-to-air munitions in strategic defense of the North American continent.
Pleasantville, New Jersey.
Atlantic City International Airport is a Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) facility. It was placed on the National Priorities List (NPL) in 1991 because of its proximity to the South Branch of Doughty's Mill Stream, which flows into Upper Atlantic City Reservoir, a source of drinking water for local residents. In addition, a sole-source aquifer underlying the FAA facility contributes 85 to 90 percent of the watershed for the Upper Atlantic City Reservoir. Sites located at the facility are the FAA salvage yard, the FAA jet fuel farm, the FAA fire training facility, and the FAA's old landfill.
The 177th Fighter Wing, New Jersey Air National Guard (ANG), is a tenant at the FAA facility. The installation's mission is to maintain fighter aircraft on continuous peacetime air defense alert to preserve U.S. air sovereignty. During wartime, the mission is to mobilize personnel and equipment for deployment to designated locations and to use air-to-air munitions in strategic defense of the North American continent. The ANG sites weren't ranked for the NPL, but the ANG facility is on the NPL because it is a tenant on the FAA property.
A Preliminary Assessment (PA) for the ANG facility, completed in November 1989, identified six sites. The PA recommended Site Inspections (SIs) at all six. Two of the sites (Sites 1 and 4) were already being investigated by the FAA and were referred to FAA for further investigation. None of the ANG sites is suspected of contributing contamination to groundwater. An SI was completed by HAZWRAP in FY95 at Sites 2, 3, 5, and 6.
A Memorandum of Agreement (MOA) between the FAA and The Air National Guard Readiness Center (ANGRC) was signed in FY95. The MOA stipulates that the FAA will perform any additional studies, and the Remedial Design and Remedial Action if necessary, at ANG sites. ANGRC will provide funding. An SI addendum for additional soil and groundwater sampling at Sites 2,3, 5, and 6 was performed in FY95. In FY96, fieldwork required under the SI addendum continued, allowing the review of the draft SI report by the FAA.
The SI addendum was completed in FY97. Relative risk evaluations were completed at Sites 2, 3, 5, and 6. A technical review committee (TRC) meets every 6 weeks. In FY97, theTRC met with the state Pinelands Commission and with local community representatives.
FY98 Restoration Progress.
Several drums were removed from Site 6. An SI addendum was completed and is under review by FAA. Based on the results of the SI, the future scope of work at the 177th Fighter Wing is being reevaluated. Cost increases are anticipated.
Remedial Investigations (RIs) were postponed due to lack of funding.
Plan of Action
Initiate RI in FY00
