The selected remedy includes the installation of a vertical barrier to facilitate containment of the Site 32 source area; extraction and treamtent of groundwater from within and below the vertical barrier to prevent migration of contaminants in the source area overburden; and excavation and off-site disposal of Site 36 metals- and VOC-contaminated soil. Extracted groundwater will be treated in the modified Site 32/36 treatment plant and will be discharged via off-site (on-base) subsurface recharge trenches or surface application. Because this remedy will result in hazardous substances remaining on-site, a periodic review will be conducted by the Air Force, U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), and NHDES to ensure that the remedy is providing adequate protection of human health and the environment. This review will be conducted at least once every 5 years as long as hazardous substances remain on-site above health-based cleanup levels.
