This Record of Decision (ROD) presents the selected remedial actions for Operable Unit 2 (OU-2) at Fort Wainwright in Fairbanks, Alaska. OU-2 originally consisted in eight source areas: the defense Reutilization and Marketing Office (DRMO) Yard, the Building 1168 Leach Well, the North Post Site, the 801 Drum Burial Site, the Engineers Park Drum Site, the Drum Site South of the Landfill, Building 3477, and the Tar Sites. The major components of the remedies at source areas are: in situ soil vapor extraction and air sparging of the groundwater to reduce volatile organic compounds to a level that meets state and federal MCLs; institutional controls that would include restrictions on groundwater well installations, site access restrictions, and maintenance of fencing at the DRMO Yard until state and federal MCLs are met; additional institutional controls, including a limitation on refilling the DRMO Yard fire suppression water tank from the existing potable water supply well, until state and federal MCLs are met (except in emergency situations); and natural attenuation to attain Alaska Water Quality Standards after reaching state and federal MCLs.
