The 2-acre Twin Cities AF Reserve (SAR Landfill) site is a former disposal area for U.S. Air Force (USAF) main Base refuse in Minneapolis, Hennepin County, Minnesota. Land use in the area consists of a Small Arms Range, Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport, and Fort Snelling State Park. The Small Arms Range Landfill (SARL), acquired by the USAF in 1955, was used for disposal of main Base refuse from 1963 to 1972. Industrial wastes were buried at the landfill. The ROD is the first and final action for the site and addresses remediation of the ground water. The primary contaminants of concern affecting the soil and surface water did not exceed ARARs and, therefore, are not considered a threat since access restrictions addressed in the ROD will be implemented at the site. The primary contaminants of concern affecting the ground water are VOCs, including benzene, 2-butanone, toluene, and TCE; other organics, including di-n-butylphthalate; and metals, including arsenic, beryllium, cadmium, and chromium. The selected remedial action for the site is included.
