The 485-acre Sacramento Army Depot (SAAD) site, 7 miles southeast of downtown Sacramento, California, is surrounded by land zoned as commercial and light industrial property. SAAD is an electronic maintenance and repair depot consisting of storage, maintenance, and office facilities. Present operations include shelter repair, electro-optics equipment repair, metal plating, and treatment of metal plating wastes. From approximately 1947 to 1972 paint sludges, oil, grease wood, trash, solvents and other industrial wastes were burned and disposed of onsite in burn pits. SAAD has since removed most of the burned material from the burn pits. The burn pits were subsequently covered with soil and revegetated. Ground water samples, collected by SAAD from 1981 to 1984, indicated that several chemical compounds were present at levels above drinking water standards in two areas. The primary contaminants of concern affecting the ground water are VOCs including TCE and PCE.
