FORMER NIKE C-32 SITE, PORTER, INDIANA: FINAL DECISION DOCUMENT (FUDS NO. G05IN000102)
U.S. Army Corps of Engineers - Louisville District, Louisville, KY. 108 pp, 2018

This decision document presents the selected remedy for the Former Nike C-32 site in Porter, Indiana. DoD acquired the site between 1956 and 1957 and used it as an Ajax missile battery (1957-1959) and then as a Hercules missile battery until the site was deactivated in 1974. The Former Nike C-32 site comprised the Launch area and the Control area. This document applies to the Launch Area portion of the site, which was purchased by a private party in 1976. The selected remedy for addressing chlorinated VOCs (TCE, cis-DCE, 1,2-DCA) in groundwater is limited excavation and offsite disposal, in situ chemical reduction via soil mixing with zero-valent iron, monitored natural attenuation, and institutional controls. https://www.lrl.usace.army.mil/Portals/64/Users/116/64/2164/Final%20Nike%20C-32%20DD_08172018.pdf?ver=2018-09-20-133230-360
