Site Characterization for Munitions Constituents
Sponsored by: EPA Federal Facilities Forum & USACE
Original Time/Date of Presentation:

October 10, 2012, 1:00 PM - 3:00 PM, EDT (17:00-19:00 GMT)

Presentation Overview:

The Federal Facilities Forum is a group of USEPA Scientist and Engineers who represent EPA Regional Program Offices and are responsible for the identification and resolution of technical/policy issues regarding the characterization and remediation of federal facility Superfund, Resource and Conservation and Recovery Act, and Base Realignment and Closure sites. In January 2012 the Federal Facility Forum with the support of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers using an Interagency Agreement completed and published a technical issue titled, "Site Characterization for Munitions Constituents" (8.3MB/170pp/PDF). This project was done in order to provide federal, state and private consultants site cleanup managers with detailed information on the nature of energetic residues on DOD training ranges, sampling strategies that provide representative samples , and the most current analytical methods that are used to characterize these samples. The issue paper is 149 pages and includes detailed discussions on residues at various types of DOD ranges ( grenade, antitank, artillery, tank, bombing, and small arms), soil sampling studies/recommended protocols, and a review of other contaminants of concern. This document also includes, a glossary of common terms, figures, tables, photographs, site specific case studies, and references.


The Webinar will review and highlight specific information found in the issue paper and focus on the following items:

  1. Explain background information on the types of military ranges and the munitions and contaminants associated with them.
  2. Describe sample preparation issues specific to energetic compounds and associated metals.
  3. Illustrate the above sampling and sample management information with four case studies.

The USEPA and U.S. Army Corps of Engineers presenters recommend that participants try to review the above issue paper prior to the October 10, 2012 Webinar.
