The former Air Force Plant 83/General Electric Operable Unit (PL-83) in Albuquerque, New Mexico is situated in an industrial area, but there are residences immediately north of the GE property. The contaminants which caused the listing of the South Valley site on the NPL consisted mainly of industrial solvents. The GE property is heavily built up, with the majority of the site paved or covered with buildings. Three areas of contamination have been identified at the site: four hazardous waste storage areas which were used for chemical storage, the north parking lot (a former dirt parking lot which was sprayed with oil as a dust control measure), and the DWB-2 area which contains methylene chloride and freon contamination. In addition to soil contamination, ground water contamination occurs at depths of up to 160 feet. The primary contaminants of concern affecting the ground water and soil are VOCs including PCE, and metals. The selected remedial action for the site is given.
