The US DOE Idaho National Engineering Laboratory (INEL), established in 1949, is located 32 miles west of Idaho Falls, Idaho. The facility occupies 890 square miles, and land use in the area is predominantly industrial. The Snake River Plain Aquifer, which underlies the INEL, has been designated as a sole source, Class I, aquifer pursuant to the Safe Drinking Water Act. Within the INEL is a 270-square-mile area, formerly known as the Naval Proving Ground (NPG), which was used prior to World War II for naval artillery testing, explosives, storage bunker testing, and ordnance disposal. Investigations by site personnel have resulted in the discovery of numerous unexploded ordnance devices, such as 3- to 16-inch artillery shells, partially exploded 125- to 2,000-pound bombs, anti-tank mines, and depth charges. The ROD addresses OU23, which covers six locations on the site: the CFA gravel pit, the storage bunkers north of Idaho Chemical Processing Plant, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Grid, CFA Building 633 Zone, Fire Station II Zone, and Power Line Road.
