Investigation and Cleanup Activities

Initial Actions

The Navy is using their removal authority to address some of the sites. Removal actions conducted to date are PCB transformer sites. PCB contaminated soil excavated and transported to NAS Barbers Point for thermal desorption treatment. The clean soil from the thermal desorption treatment was used to backfill the excavated sites. A suspected dump site near Building 293 was investigated and found to not pose an unacceptable risk. A 'No-Action' Record of Decision was signed by the Navy, EPA and HDOH in September of 2006.

Site Studies

The Navy is currently investigating several dumpsites and an old landfill.

Site Studies

The Navy, EPA and HDOH signed Records of Decisions in February 2010, specifying land use controls for the Old Incinerator Site and the Old Wahiawa Landfill. Both of these sites have buried contaminants, but the surface conditions pose no risk to human health.

Site Studies

The Navy completed the RI for the Building 6 Gulch and found limited hot-spots of lead and PCBs. They completed a removal action in 2008 and submitted a draft No Action ROD in 2011.
