Problems/Comments

Groundwater Zone 5 (OT31). Fire training area, operation dates from 1982 to 1990. Potential materials disposed include JP-4 and waste oil. Petroleum and solvent (primarily TCE) contamination in soils and groundwater. Site has impacted Red Fox Creek (currently on the 303d list of impaired water bodies). In 1995, approximately 2,025 cubic yards of contaminated soil was removed at FTA No. 1. In 1997, approximately 3,600 cubic yards of contaminated soil was removed at RAPCON. The contaminated soil was treated in the facility biocells and reused on LF06 in 1999, and subsequent years as contaminated soil in the biocells become remediated and meet cleanup levels. A biovent/air sparge remediation system was installed at RAPCON in 1998 to treat soil and groundwater contamination. The system operates intermittently until 2002, when the system was converted to a bioventing system. Not all of the well points were able to be converted, and additional points are scheduled to be added to the system in 2003.

10/22/2008 Report or Workplan Review - Other ADEC recieved a copy of the Draft 2007 Comprehensive Environmental Monitoring Report covering Groundwater Zones 1, 2, 3, 4, and RAPCON and Red Fox Creek. It is dated October 2008 and is under review by the State. Jonathan Schick
3/6/2009 Update or Other Action ADEC recieved a copy of the 2008 Biovent tatus Report for the RAPCON site. 2 of the three blowers were in operation through the past year with only minor power interruptions. One of the blowers failed and the motor burned out. The site has been remediated to the extent practical because the contamination is limited to the smear zone. Therefore the recommendation is to discontinue the Bioventing system at the year's end, and so not to replace the bunt out blower. Jonathan Schick
4/21/2009 Update or Other Action ADEC staff conducted a site visit to pertinent sites at King Salmon Air Station over a 2 day visit.

8/10/2010 Report or Workplan Review - Other ADEC recieved a Draft version of the work plan for 2010 Monitoring Program for RAPCON and Red FOx Creek. Surface water and sediment samples will be collected from 4 locations in the wetlands and tributary leading to Red Fox Creek. Groundwater samples will be collected from the established network of 6 monitoring wells. Jonathan Schick
8/13/2010 Report or Workplan Review - Other ADEC submitted comments on the Draft Work Plan for monitoring at RAPCON and Red Fox Creek. The main concerns for ADEC were that there was a reference to a Final Record of Decision for the site and that document is still in Draft form. Also there was a reference to the "ten times" rule which does not apply to sites in Groundwater Zone 5 so that part of the sentence was requested to be removed. Jonathan Schick
