The Plattsburgh Air Force Base (AFB) site is located south of the City of Plattsburgh, Clinton County, New York. The U.S. Air Force's Installation Restoration Program (IRP) identified 39 sites at Plattsburgh AFB with potential contamination by hazardous materials. One of these sites, the 13-acre LF-022 landfill, is located on the western side of the Base, 1,350 feet north of a small mobile home development. From 1959 to 1966, the landfill received domestic wastes from Plattsburgh AFB for disposal. The ROD addresses the contaminated soil at the site, as OU3, to minimize potential current and future ecological risks associated with exposure to pesticides in surface soil. The primary contaminants of concern affecting the soil and debris are VOCs; other organics, including pesticides; and metals, including chromium and lead.
