This report describes the second phase of a two-phase investigation undertaken by the MITRE Corp. to determine the nature and severity of ground and surface water contamination at the Picillo property in Coventry, Rhode Island and to make recommendations for permanent abatement of the situation. The following Phase II activities were subsequently carried out to obtain the necessary additional information and to provide further elaboration on the problem: Bedrock sampling, installation of bedrock wells, and field permeability testing, exploratory excavation of drums, ground-penetrating radar survey, seismic refraction survey, and collection and chemical analysis of additional soil, ground water, and surface water samples.
