During the Targeted Brownfield Assessment that was performed in Allakaket in 2010, at the request of a community member, a soil sample was collected from an area that contains an old generator. This area was the former location of an old generator shack from which power was supplied to most of the community. The soil sample was analyzed for diesel range (DRO), gasoline range (GRO), and residual range organics (RRO), and benzene, toluene, ethylbenzene, and xylenes (BTEX). The soil sample results indicated GRO at 897 parts per million (ppm) and DRO at 20,000 ppm. All other analytes were below DEC cleanup levels.
