The 13,130-acre Elmendorf Air Force Base (AFB) site is located adjacent to the municipality of Anchorage, Alaska. From 1940 to 1991, Elmendorf AFB used a 20-acre portion of the site, referred to as source area ST41, to store the fuel product JP-4 and aviation gasoline in four 1-million gallon underground tanks. As a result of numerous leaks and above-ground spills since the tanks were installed in the 1940s, USAF conducted investigations through its Installation Restoration Program (IRP). These investigations revealed several hundred thousand gallons of fuel in the ground water and soil. The ROD addresses an interim remedy at Elmendorf AFB. The action is needed to reduce further spread of fuel constituents through the recovery of floating product on the ground water surface, and containment of seeps. Future RODs will include a final remedy for ground water and soil at ST41, as OU2, and will address the other six OUs at the site. The primary contaminants of concern affecting the ground water at ST41 are the compounds in JP-4, especially VOCs such as benzene, toluene, and xylenes. The selected interim remedial action for the site are included.
