Collect Soil Samples Near the Chariot, Alaska Site
CX(s) Applied: B3.1
Location(s): Cape Thompson, Alaska
Office(s): Legacy Management
The United States Department of Energy Office of Legacy Management proposes to conduct a limited soil investigation in the vicinity of five Project Chariot test holes (Able, Baker, Charlie, Dog, and XI). The purpose of the investigation is to determine if diesel-range organics are present in the soils as a result of geologic characterization activities conducted at the site between 1959 and 1962. The investigation would be conducted in response to concerns of regional inhabitants that residual contamination may remain in the site soils.
