NPL Status: Final

Proposed Date: 10/15/84

Final Date: 07/22/87

Deleted Date:

The 3,452-acre McClellan Air Force Base (AFB) site was established in 1936 and operated as an Air Force Logistics Command Base with a primary mission of management, maintenance, and repair of aircraft, electronics, and communication equipment. The operation and maintenance of aircraft have involved the use, storage, and disposal of hazardous materials including industrial solvents, caustic cleansers, paints, metal plating wastes, low-level radioactive wastes, and a variety of fuel oils and lubricants. The Air Force has identified 326 waste areas of known and suspected contamination. Under BRAC IV, McClellan AFB closed as an active military base in July 2001.

Contaminants and Risks

Contaminated Media
  • Groundwater
  • Surface Water
  • Soil and Sludges

The primary contaminants in groundwater are volatile organic compounds (VOCs). Contaminants detected in soil include PCBs, heavy metals, and several non-VOCs. Radionuclides have also been identified in surface soil and in former disposal pits. People may face a health risk if they accidentally ingest or come into direct contact with contaminants. People also may be at risk if they eat foods containing accumulated contaminants or if they inhale contaminated dust or soil vapors. Risks to wildlife and their habitat may occur on and adjacent to the former Base in some areas of the creeks, vernal pools, and other parts of the flood plain.

Who is Involved

This site is being addressed primarily through federal actions directed by the Air Force Civil Engineer Center (formerly known as the Air Force Real Property Agency) and overseen by US EPA Region 9, California State Department of Toxic Substances Control (DTSC), and California Regional

Water Quality Control Board (RWQCB). The Air Force, EPA, and State work together under the terms of a Federal Facilities Agreement (FFA) signed in 1990.

As part of the “Privatized” Cleanup Approach (see below), the 1990 FFA has been amended 4 times (2007, 2009, 2011, and 2014) to allow McClellan Business Park LLC (MBP) to assume responsibility for cleanup of 1,335 acresof McClellan AFB. MBP conducts the cleanup actions under the oversight of EPA, DTSC and RWQCB, as with other areas of McClellan AFB. The FFA Amendments further provide that EPA, in consultation with the State regulators,will select the response actions for the privatized parcels and that if MBP should fail to perform their cleanup responsibilities, the Air Force will resume their responsibilities under the original 1990 FFA.

Investigation and Cleanup Activities

Overall Approach: Two different approaches are currently being undertaken to address the contamination at McClellan AFB: the traditional CERCLA approach and the privatized cleanup approach.

The traditional CERCLA approach at McClellan AFB involves the Air Force investigating the sites, determining the nature and extent of contamination in soil and groundwater, evaluating the risk, preparing a Record of Decision (ROD) to document the selected remedial action and then designing and conducting the remedial actions. The most complex sites are following this approach.

The privatized cleanup approach was undertaken for the first time nationwidein August 2007 at the McClellan Parcel C-6, a 62-acre site contaminated with PCBs. The privatized cleanup approach involves deeding the land to a private party before cleanup of contamination is complete. The private party uses money provided by the Air Force to complete site investigation and cleanup under the direction of EPA and state regulators. MBP, with oversight from EPA , is addressing contamination in the first 15 feet of soil and soil gas below the surface. The Air Force will continue cleaning up the groundwater and deeper soil and soil gas. Privatization combines redevelopment needs with environmental cleanup efforts and helps accelerate the reuse of the sites.

The second early transfer with privatized clean up (FOSET 1) was signed during Summer 2010 and to date remediation of 15 sites (Initial Parcel #2) and 49 sites (Initial Parcel #3) has been completed. There are 16 sites (Group 4) which are under investigation.

The third early transfer with privatized cleanup (FOSET 2) was signed during Summer 2012 and transferred 133 sites, of which 123 required EPA to select remedies. The ROD has been signed and cleanup plan approved for 43 sites, the ROD is in draft final form for 35 sites, and the remedy proposal is in process for the remaining 45 sites. Remediation is complete or underway for the 10 sites for which the Air Force selected the remedy.

The fourth early transfer with privatized cleanup (FOSET 3) was signed during Spring 2015 and transferred 46 sites which are being remediated or for which the cleanup plan is underway.

The latest updates on the privatized cleanup at McClellan can be found in the recent Restoration Advisory Board (RAB) presentations posted below in the Documents and Reports section under the Community Involvement heading.

The initial strategy at McClellan AFB was to investigate and cleanup soil sites by geographic areas. The Air Force divided McClellan AFB into a number of operable units (OUs), OUs A through H and a groundwater OU, to facilitate geographically organized cleanup but this process has been abandoned. Currently, site cleanup is organized according to similar cleanup approaches or type of contamination.

Initial Actions

A number of remedial actions have been taken at the facility. Early actions addressed some soil and landfill sites with removals and caps, while other early actions addressed groundwater plumes with a gradually expanding groundwater extraction and treatment system enhanced by numerous soil vapor extraction (SVE) systems.

Immediate Actions: In 1984-1989, the Air Force removed contaminated soil and constructed an 11-acre cap (OU D1 cap) in the northwestern portion of the Base. In the central portion of the Base, a groundwater treatment plant was constructed to treat extracted groundwater and an alternative water supply was provided to local residences.

Interim Actions: In the mid 1990s, two interim actions were initiated to remove solvents from the subsurface and to minimize further migration of the solvents away from their source areas. These included a 1993 removal action to install a number of SVE systems and a 1995 Groundwater Interim ROD (IROD) to install extraction wells on and off-base to contain VOC-contaminated groundwater plumes. In 1993, the Air Force also conducted an interim action to address PCB contamination in soil in a former transformer storage area through the construction of a 5-acre cap (OU B1 cap).

CS 010 Removal Actions: In August 2000, a Non-Time Critical Removal Action was begun at CS010, a waste disposal pit. This removal action was initiated after the Air Force determined that radioactive contamination in the soil at this site exceeded "acceptable" risk criteria. In addition, buried 55-gallon drums at the site were to be removed because radioactive contents within the drums posed a risk if the drums leaked or were ruptured. The removal action included excavation of 109, 55-gallon drums, one (1) 20-gallon drum, excavation of 480 cubic yards of soil, and laboratory wastes. Contents of one drum were labeled as containing plutonium. As a result, excavation activities were stopped on September 6, 2000.

The Air Force subsequently initiated a Time-Critical Removal Action which was intended to remove all contamination at the site that posed excess risks to human health and the environment. A total of 533 drums and 27,409 cubic yards of soil were removed. However, due to mounting soil disposal costs, the remaining 23,409 cubic yards of soil were stored under a weatherized tent at CS 010.

In June 2003, the Air Force incorporated an ion exchange treatment system to remove hexavalent chromium from treated groundwater before it is discharged to a nearby creek.

In 2007, a Non-VOC Groundwater ROD Amendment was signed. It includes a remedy for perchlorate, 1,4 dioxane and chromium. Since the Non-VOC plumes are almost entirely collocated with the VOC plumes, only one additional extraction well was required and no additional treatment was necessary.

In 2010, US EPA concurred with the Air Force determination that the groundwater remedy was operating properly and successfully, as required by CERCLA section 120(h)(3) for property transfer.

In 2012, the Air Force started three Non-Time Critical Removal Actions (NTCRAs) to clean up radium 226 contamination at 3 site groups:

1. FOSET # 1 sites (2 sites). Site PRL S-030A was completed in 2015, and Site AOC 314 is still ongoing.

2. FOSET # 2 sites (8 sites) were completed in 2014.

3. FOSET # 3 sites (19 sites) 17 Sites out of these 19 sites were completed in 2014. The other sites were deferred to an Air Force ROD signed in June 2014.

The objective of these removal actions was to ensure that no further action was required to address radiological contamination at these sites before the Air Force transfers the sites for reuse or further clean up, as needed.

Remedy Selected

As stated above, the final cleanup decisions for sites at McClellan AFB are being organized according to similar cleanup approaches or type of contamination under a number of RODs.

The following thirteen RODs have been finalized to date and can be viewed individually in the Documents and Reports Section below. The remaining RODs are planned for 2017 through 2018 and will address soil and soil gas. To view the Air Force documents (AR#), click on the following U.S. Air Force Civil Engineer Center web link, http://afcec.publicadmin-record.us.af.mil/Search.aspx , click on the "BRAC" radial button near the top left of the page, select "McClellan AFB" under the "Installation List", enter the appropriate criteria, and then click the "Search" button near the bottom of the page.

[1] No Further Action ROD (signed February 2003; AR# 4502): This ROD addressed six sites (PRLB-004, SA 064, SA 039, SA 050, PRL 035, and SA 017) that contained no soil contamination. By stating this conclusion in a ROD, these sites became available for property transfer and removal from the Air Force site tracking system.

[2] Initial Parcel #1 ROD (signed June 2004; AR# 5488): This ROD addresses non-VOC contamination in soil at seven sites (SA 003, PRL S-014, SA 035, PRL S-040, PRL S-033, SA 041, SA 091). As a result of this ROD, approximately 2,600 cubic yards of contaminated soil were removed from SA 003 and approximately 300 cubic yards of contaminated soil were removed from PRL S-014. No further action was required for non-VOCs in soils at the 5 remaining sites. PRL S-040 did require additional action on state requirements to address fuel-related contamination which is not covered by CERCLA requirements.

[3] Basewide VOC Groundwater ROD and ROD Amendment (signed August 2007 and amended in August 2009; AR# 6475): This ROD (as amended) addresses VOC and non-VOC contamination in all portions of groundwater plumes regardless of whether they are located within or outside of the Base boundaries. The selected remedy requires extraction and treatment of groundwater, along with soil vapor extraction (SVE) and institutional controls. Institutional controls are non-engineering, non-technical mechanisms used to reduce or prevent human exposure to contaminants. Preventing extraction of the groundwater for any purpose other than remediation or monitoring is one example of an institutional control. Air stripping and SVE address VOC contamination. Ion exchange is applied to hexavalent chromium.

[4] Initial Parcel #2 ROD (signed September 2008; AR# 6504): This ROD addresses contamination associated with 23 sites within the Base (AOC H-1, AOC H-2, AOC H-3, AOC H-8, AOC H-13, PRL S-033, PRL S-040, PRL S047, SA 003, SA 035, SA 041, SA 091, Tank 783, Tank 788, AOC G-2, AOC H-12, CS S-049, AOC H-14, SA 105, and PRL S-014). These sites are considered most desirable by the county and developer for redevelopment. Actions for these sites range from soil excavation to institutional controls.

[5] Parcel C-6 ROD (signed May 2009; SEMS Document ID#1117271): The first EPA Record of Decision (ROD) under Privatization addressed contaminated soil on the 62-acre portion of land referred to as Parcel C-6, located in the southwestern section of the former McClellan Air Force Base Superfund Site. Parcel C-6 included 12 Installation Restoration Program sites previously identified by the Air Force.

C-6 Remedies (some sites had more than one remedy):
No Action (1 site)
Excavation, Off-Site Disposal, Institutional Controls (1 site)
Excavation, Low Temperature Thermal Desorption, Reuse of Soil, Selective Disposal, Institutional Controls (3 sites)
Institutional Controls only (7 sites)
Institutional Controls and Vapor Intrusion Remedy (1 site)

EPA and the State of CA signed the C-6 ROD in 2009. MBP completed the cleanup in 2011. C-6 was the first completed cleanup nationwide under Privatization.

[6] AOC G-1 ROD (signed January 2010; AR# 7114): This ROD addresses contamination associated with a former debris pit located east of 32nd Street in the vicinity of the ballfields. The selected remedy is institutional controls to limit exposure to people in the vicinity of a former disposal area, where construction debris and waste was encountered between 1 and 5 feet bgs. The institutional controls prohibit sensitive uses in portion of the property where the disposal pit is located but permit recreational use. A digging restriction is also in place which requires agency notification prior to any intrusive work with the exception of routine activities such as landscaping and irrigation.

[7] Skeet Range ROD (signed June 2011; AR# 7327): The selected remedy presented in this ROD is Excavation, Disposal, Revegetation, and Institutional Controls (Restricted land Use) to protect public health, Soil and sediment contaminated with lead and PAHs were excavated, and Taxiway 7611 was swept to capture and remove shot pellets remaining on the surface of the pavement. This cleanup was completed in the fall of 2012.

[8] Focused Strategic Sites ROD (signed April 2012; AR# 7522): This ROD addresses contamination associated with the Air Force’s former waste disposal pits and large volume sites that are the most technically challenging. The Air Force prepared an FS and selected a preferred alternative in the PP. The Air Force selected remedies to cap waste disposal pits CS 011, CS 012, CS 013, CS 014, AOC 313, PRL 008, and the Vadose Zone Site; excavate, ex-situ treat, and consolidate waste from CS 010, CS 024, and the Small Arms Firing Range site; partially excavate, ex-situ treat, consolidate and cap waste from the CS 022 site; and use the open excavation at one of the excavated disposal pits (CS 010) to contain contaminated soils from CS 010, CS 022, CS 024, and the Small Arms Firing Range site.

Cleanup of the Focused Strategic Sites began in 2013 with the excavation of the former landfill known as CS 010 on the west side of the base, and construction of the site's engineered Consolidation Unit. An engineered Combined Cap was installed over four adjacent landfills and a fire training area. The cap is finished and the City of Sacramento Fire Department is using the new access road to reach their adjacent training facility.

In 2014, two additional landfills were excavated and backfilled with clean soil - CS 024 on the southern tip of the base alongside the railroad tracks, and CS 022 next to the Groundwater Treatment Plant on Patrol Road. Trucks carried the excavated soils to the CU for safe, permanent disposal.

The Small Arms Firing Range on the northwest side of the base was excavated in 2014. The lead-laden soil was treated with Portland cement to bind the lead before depositing it into the Consolidation Unit. The Air Force coordinated closely with the Northern California Regional Public Safety Training Authority to limit disruptions to their ongoing training for law enforcement agencies.

In 2015, another debris area in the Focused Strategic Sites Project, PRL 008, located just north of the CU, was excavated in one small spot. An engineered cap was installed over that site.

[9] Initial Parcel #3: (signed September 2012; SEMS Document I # 1135868): This ROD addresses contamination associated with 49 sites at the former base: 43 sites are located in the southern portion; one site (PRL S-042) is located in the northeast portion of the base; and five sites (AOC 322, CS 023, Operable Unit [OU] B1 Drainage Ditch, PRL S-013, and PRL 060) are located in the western portion. Site PRL L-005G was not included in the IP #3 FS, but the western portion of the site is included in the AOC. Therefore, PRL L-005G is included in this ROD. These sites are the second set of sites identified by the County and developer for redevelopment. Remedies range from no action, to institutional controls, to excavation.

[10] Ecological Sites ROD (signed March 2013; AR# 7668): This ROD addressed contaminated sites impacting creeks, flood plains, vernal pools and other ecological areas. The feasibility study to evaluate alternatives for the site was completed in March 2010. The sites included the former A-1 Metals Facility at the northwest tip of the base, three vernal pools near the Small Arms Firing Range, portions of the IC 17 Seasonal Creek and Drainage Ditch, an off-base segment of Don Julio Creek, a segment of Magpie Creek west of the runway, and tailings piles along Magpie Creek and Don Julio Creek in the West Nature Area. Last In summer 2015, the Air Force excavated these areas and disposed of the sediments in the Consolidation Unit.

The creek beds were restored to their previous condition (some are lined and some are unlined) after confirmation sampling verified cleanup objectives had been reached. Impacts to the vernal pools are mitigated through the purchase of mitigation credits.

[11] Follow-on Strategic Sites ROD (signed July 2014; AR# 420534): This ROD addressed 88 sites at the former Base that contain landfills and disposal pits that were not addressed in the Focused Strategic Sites ROD. A combination of remedies were selected for the 88 Follow-on Strategic Sites (FOSS) sites. The cleanup workplan has been approved for the 7 Air Force lead sites (remediation is underway for 6 sites and remediation has been completed at 1 site) and the remaining sites were transferred under FOSETs 2 and 3 for privatized cleanup.

[12] FOSET #2 Action Sites ROD (signed March 2015; SEMS Document ID# 1149464): This ROD addresses 43 sites to the east and south of the airfield. The Action Sites come from larger site groupings known as the Follow-on Strategic Sites (FOSS), Small Volume Sites (SVS), and Building 252 Sites. This ROD selects remedies for both volatile organic compound (VOC) contaminants in shallow soil gas (depths less than 15 feet below ground surface [bgs]) and for non-VOC contaminants in soil within 15 feet bgs (with certain exceptions).

[13] FOSET #2 No Further Action Sites ROD: “(signed July 2016; SEMS Document ID# 1160622): This ROD addresses 35 sites at the former McClellan Air Force Base which were transferred as part of the FOSET 2, the third property transfer under McClellan Privatization. The FOSET 2 No Further Action (NFA) Sites ROD selected an NFA remedy for soil and soil gas extending from the surface to 15 feet below ground surface at each of the 35 sites.


Strategy for Remaining RODs:

[14] FOSET #2 Group 2 Action Sites ROD: This ROD will address 45 sites not covered by the Action Sites or NFA RODs. Most of the actions are likely to be Institutional and/or Engineered Controls and a few of the sites will likely be similar to the cleanup actions undertaken for sites in the Action Sites ROD.

[15] FOSET #1 Group 4 Sites ROD: This ROD will address those sites covered by the Group 4 RI/FS, currently being prepared by McClellan Business Park. It will include two sites with radioactive contamination which the Air Force is currently addressing. This is anticipated to be the final ROD required at the former Base.

Cleanup Ongoing

Ongoing Cleanup


Groundwater extraction and treatment continues at the former Base. Groundwater is extracted and treated at the groundwater treatment plant (GWTP) in the central portion of the facility. With the installation of the Phase 3 on-base groundwater extraction wells in September 2005, the extraction network was essentially complete. Currently, 1500 gallons per minute (gpm) of extracted groundwater are treated (via air stripping and ion exchange) before being discharged to Magpie Creek. Ongoing operation and maintenance activities continue. Since Phase 3, several extraction and monitoring wells have been replaced and new monitoring wells were installed in the southern area of the base to delineate a previously undefined carbon tetrachloride plume. Groundwater cleanup is expected to continue for several decades until cleanup is attained. The Fate, Flow and Transport Model that was developed in 2004 predicted that TCE could be below its maximum contaminant level (MCL, 5 ug/L) in 55 years. That model was updated in 2012 with recent information and recalibrated. Aggressive hot spot remediation is underway which is estimated to reduce the cleanup time by 17 years, with groundwater cleanup estimated to be completed by 2043.

SVE is a component of the VOC groundwater remedy. SVE is used to remove and treat VOC sources in the vadose zone with the potential to migrate to groundwater. A large majority of the 1.6 million pounds of solvents removed to date from the groundwater and soil have been extracted by these SVE systems. Technical working group meetings and SVE Termination and Optimization Process (STOP) evaluations have determined that remediation has been completed at 21 of the SVE sites. These systems have been removed and the vapor wells decommissioned, and there are currently 5 SVEs which remain active. Additional systems may be added to complete the network that protects groundwater from VOCs in the vadose zone if they are needed.

Final remedies for the Focused Strategic Sites began to be implemented in 2013 with the excavation of the former landfill known as CS 010 on the west side of the base, and construction of the site's engineered Consolidation Unit. An engineered Combined Cap was installed over four adjacent landfills and a fire training area. The cap is finished and the City of Sacramento Fire Department is using a new access road to reach their adjacent training facility.

In 2014, two additional landfills were excavated and backfilled with clean soil - CS 024 on the southern tip of the base alongside the railroad tracks, and CS 022 next to the Groundwater Treatment Plant on Patrol Road. Trucks carried the excavated soils to the CU for safe, permanent disposal.

The Small Arms Firing Range on the northwest side of the base was excavated in 2014. The lead-laden soil was treated with Portland cement to bind the lead before depositing it into the Consolidation Unit. The Air Force coordinated closely with the Northern California Regional Public Safety Training Authority to limit disruptions to their ongoing training for law enforcement agencies.

In 2015, another debris area in the Focused Strategic Sites Project, PRL 008, located just north of the CU, was excavated in one small spot. An engineered cap was completed over that site.

Cleanup Complete

Site Completions: Actions (administrative and remedial) have been completed for the sites covered under the No Action ROD , the Initial Parcel #1 ROD , the Initial Parcel #2 ROD, the Parcel C-6 ROD, the AOC G-1 ROD, the Skeet Range ROD, the Ecological Sites ROD, and the Initial Parcel #3 ROD described above.

Cleanup Results to Date

Cleanup Progress:
Groundwater and Soil Vapor Cleanup: The removal and disposal of some contaminated soil and underground tanks, the capping of the northwestern area of the Base, and the installation and operation of a groundwater extraction system and 19 soil vapor extraction systems treating 26 areas have reduced the potential for exposure to contaminants at the former McClellan AFB site. From the mid-1980s through 2011, these extraction systems have removed over 1.6 million pounds of VOCs. Providing an alternate water supply has eliminated the potential for exposure to contaminated drinking water and continues to protect area residents until final site cleanup is complete.

Soil and Soil Gas Sites Cleanup: Furthermore, site cleanup has been completed for the sites included in Air Force RODs 1, 2, 4, 6, 7, 8, and 9, as listed above. Privatized site cleanup has been completed for the sites included in EPA RODs 5 and 11 as listed above.


          Restoration and Reuse Progress: The entire former base is being reused under agreements between the Air Force, Sacramento County, and their property developer, McClellan Business Park. General uses of the base include light industrial, aircraft maintenance and repair, airfield taxiways and parking aprons, as well as manufacturing, assembly, and warehouse and distribution activities. McClellan Business Park employs approximately 13,500 people at 240 businesses, making it a model for communities redeveloping shuttered military bases.

      All property is subject to land use controls pending completed cleanup work. These controls include digging and groundwater restrictions, as well as restrictions on the type of reuse, for example, preventing residential use until certain cleanup standards are achieved. Enforceable restrictions in the deeds prevent exposure from soil and groundwater contamination until remedial actions are completed. When cleanup is completed, the need for continuing these environmental restrictions is reevaluated.

      Transfer Progress: Approximately 1,973 (57%) of the 3,452 total acres of the former Base have been transferred. An additional 1,040 acres is scheduled to be transferred by the end of 2016.
