Alabama Army Ammunition Plant (AAAP) is located near Childersburg in Talladega County, Alabama. The soils of Operable Unit 2, within Area B, were found to contain explosives and metals (lead, chromium, and nickel) compounds at levels of concern. The continuing Remedial Investigation found evidence of explosives and metals contamination in Study Areas 2 (Smokeless Powder Facility), 10 (Tetryl Manufacturing Area), 16 (Flashing Ground), 17 (Propellant Shipping Area), 19 (Lead Remelt Facility), and 22 (Demolition Landfill). These study areas were broken out as a separate Operable Unit (OU-6) for the purpose of remediating the soils while the incinerator is still onsite and while the groundwater investigation continues.
