IRP Site 7 - Station Landfill

From the mid-1950s to 1973 trash, debris, and other waste such as solvents, transformer oil, lubricants, paint sludge, asbestos, photo solutions, and mercury were disposed of at Site 7. Based on groundwater studies and field investigations, the Navy conducted periodic groundwater sampling to monitor site conditions, and implemented a removal action in 2003 to excavate landfill contents in selected areas, dispose of them off-site at an appropriate permitted waste facility, and to repair the existing soil cover. Periodic inspection and maintenance of the soil cover and vegetation is ongoing.
