The 85-acre Naval Education and Training Center (NETC) is a training facility and tank farm located on Aquidneck Island, Middletown, Rhode Island. The NETC facility is situated along 6 miles of shoreline bordering Narragansett Bay. There are currently four areas of contamination and six study areas, with NETC Newport under investigation. Tank Farm Five consists of 11 underground storage tanks (USTs), numbered 49 through 59, which were constructed between 1942 and 1943 for fuel storage and used until 1974. In 1985, analytical results collected from the monitoring wells installed in the ring drains of Tanks 53 and 56 revealed the presence of several chlorinated and aromatic hydrocarbons and traces of mercury. The interim ROD addresses management of the ground water in the vicinity of Tanks 53 and 56 to control or prevent further migration of contaminated ground water and remediation to begin to reduce the concentration of contaminants until a final remedy can be chosen. The primary contaminants of concern affecting the ground water are VOCs, including benzene and TCE; and metals, including arsenic, chromium, and lead.
