The 46.5-acre USAF Robins Air Force Base site is a logistics management and repair center for aircraft, missiles, and support systems in Warner Robins, Houston County, Georgia. The Zone 1 area, which includes a 45-acre inactive landfill and a 1.5-acre sludge lagoon is part of the 8,855-acre Robins Air Force Base. Types of wastes generated at the facility included electroplating wastes, organic solvents from cleaning operations, and pesticides, all of which were disposed of in the lagoon and landfill areas. The Record of Decision (ROD), which focuses on OU1, addresses the remediation of Landfill No. 4 and the sludge lagoon. The selected remedial action for the site includes treating 15,000 cubic yards of soil in the sludge lagoon using in-situ soil vapor extraction; removing volatile contaminants from the air using condensation, distillation, and carbon adsorption; controlling and treating landfill leachate; renovating the landfill cover; and treating the sludge lagoon to remove VOCs.
