The 260-acre waste site, a multiple use waste disposal area, is located on Naval Air Station (NAS) Whidbey Island-Ault Field, which is an active airbase northeast of the City of Oak Harbor, Island County, Washington. The northwest sector of the airbase, known as Area 6, maintains and provides support to naval aircraft and aviation facilities. From 1969 to 1988, hazardous wastes were dumped and stored at various pits, trenches, and landfills located in Area 6. The ROD addresses interim remediation of the ground water to prevent the spread of the contaminated plume in the aquifer to drinking water wells while other locations on the airbase are evaluated. The primary contaminants of concern affecting the ground water are VOCs, including TCE; and metals, including chromium and lead.
