Dye Burial Grounds

Land use controls (LUCs)
  • Approximately 25 tons of military smoke dyes and dye contaminated materials (e.g., magnesium, boxes, and rags contaminated with dyes) were deposited in trenches between 1952 and 1964.
  • Excavations were performed to consolidate the waste material and adjacent contaminated soil which were covered with a 4.2-acre multilayered cap of engineered material and soil from 1996 to 1998.
  • Corrective measures include long-term monitoring (LTM) of groundwater, LUCs to prevent use of groundwater, periodic reviews, and site inspections.
  • Biennial LTM began in 2007 and ceased in 2015 due to the lack of detected dyes and dye degradation products and dye analysis was becoming technically impracticable.
  • Statement of Basis, June 2006; Administrative Record File (ARF) 001032.
  • Evaluation of Dye Monitoring, October 2017; ARF 002735
  • Five Year Review, January 2018; ARF 002806
