The 2,200-acre Alabama Army Ammunition Plant (AAAP) site was located in Talladega County, Alabama, near the junction of Talladega Creek and the Coosa River. AAAP was built in 1941 as a government-owned and contractor-operated facility that produced nitrocellulose, nitroaromatic explosives, and 2,4,6-trinitriophenyl methyl nitramine. In 1978, the U.S. Army's Toxic and Hazardous Materials Agency (USATHAMA), managing the Army's Installation Restoration Program (IRP), identified soil, sediment, and ground water potentially contaminated by explosives, asbestos, and lead as a result of past site operations. This remedial action describes remedial action for soil and sediment contaminated by explosives (DNT, TNT, nitrotoluenes, and nitrobenzenes) and metals (mostly lead).
