SD045 - Former Small Arms Range




Soil Excavation at Former Small Arms Range

The former Small Arms Range (SD045) is a decommissioned facility that was used for small arms training. Lead, antimony, and copper were detected in the soil.

Based on human health and ecological assessments of the potential risks posed by the contaminants, the West/Annexes/Basewide Operable Unit Soil Record of Decision selected Excavation for the soil at this site.

In the summer of 2007, Travis AFB carried out a soil cleanup action at Site SD045. All of the contaminated soil was excavated and placed in a Corrective Action Management Unit (CAMU), located at Site LF007. The soil cleanup action achieved residential cleanup levels for all chemicals of concern, so there are no Land Use Controls in place at the site. The results of the soil cleanup action are presented in a 2008 remedial action completion report for multiple sites. Since there are no other media of concern associated with the former Small Arms Range, Site SD045 is closed.
