The 3,734-acre Dover Air Force Base site is an active military base in Dover, Kent County, Delaware. Hazardous waste has been generated at the base from industrial operations, fuels management, fire training, and pesticide use. These wastes have been handled in various manners since 1941, including disposal in onsite landfills and pits, use in fire training exercises, and discharge to surface drainage ditches. The Record of Decision (ROD) addresses remediation of soil and structures within the FT-3 area. Subsequent RODs will address other sources of contamination and contaminated ground water in other site areas. The primary contaminants of concern affecting the soil, sludge, and debris are VOCs including benzene, toluene, and xylenes; metals including lead; and oils.
