5th Quarter - Final Quarterly Progress Report

May 1, 2000 - July 31, 2000

Table of Contents

This quarterly progress report for CSSA, Texas, U.S. EPA Identification Number TX2210020739, is submitted in accordance with the Administrative Order on Consent (Order) issued to CSSA on May 5, 1999 pursuant to 3008(h) of the Solid Waste Disposal Act, as amended by RCRA, and further amended by the Hazardous and Solid Waste Amendments of 1984, 42 U.S.C. 6928(h). This report encompasses the fifth progress report period for the project and includes progress on the project from May 1, 2000 through July 31, 2000 (Quarter 5). Subsequent progress reports will continue to be submitted on a quarterly basis.

This report details work completed on tasks associated with four project phases outlined in the order. Phase names and task names listed below are taken directly from the Order. For each active task, the information requested in the Order is provided in this report. If the task is not yet active, that is also noted.

Order work tasks fall under four basic categories: Interim Measures, RCRA Facility Investigation, Corrective Measures Study, and Corrective Measures Implementation. To meet the requirements of the Order, it is estimated that the majority of the work efforts will be part of the RCRA Facility Investigation and the Corrective Measures Implementation. As described in the first Quarterly Progress Report (reporting period: May 1, 1999 - July 30, 1999), Interim Measures, RCRA Facility Investigation, and Corrective Measures each account for approximately 30% of the Order tasks. The remaining 10% consist of the Corrective Measures Study.

Schedule

A master schedule detailing all of the required environmental activities specified in the Order, along with project activities under contract, was included in the Quarter 2 Progress Report.

Specific activities planned for the next quarter were described in the preceding sections.

During Quarter 5, CSSA and AFCEE developed and refined the Scope of Work for a new RFI delivery order. New tasks included in this delivery order will include Phase II RFIs at AOCs 65 and 67, as well as a soil gas survey in the southwest quadrant of CSSA. Also included in this delivery order will be four rounds of onsite monitoring and six rounds of monitoring at 20 offsite locations, and a Drought Contingency Plan. The new delivery order will also fund the continuation of the TIMs, Community Relations Plan updates and fact sheets, and Quarterly Progress Reporting.

A TIM was held on July 26, 2000 at the Parsons ES office located in Austin, Texas. Representatives from CSSA, AFCEE, and Parsons ES met to discuss the progress of the current delivery orders. The meeting included a conference call initiated by SERDP regarding the PIMS demonstration project planned for SWMU B-20. Parsons ES performed demonstrations of the CSSA GIS, the hyperlinked Encyclopedia, and an overview of the GMS groundwater modeling system.

Outstanding chemistry issues were also discussed which included a new system for submitting laboratory packages to AFCEE, and government comments on the APPL background metals package. Parsons ES will retrieve and re-submit the data packages as grouped by sampling effort, and eight data packages with incorrect MS/MSD calculations will be re-issued. The MS/MSD re-calculations will not affect the numerical value of the analytical result, but "M" flags may be removed as a result. Closure criteria was also discussed for the pending investigation/closure reports for those sites sampled in March and April 2000. It was agreed during the meeting that the Risk Reduction Standards should be used, unless a site does not meet RRS1 (background) criteria. In those cases, sample results should be compared to the new Texas Risk Reduction Program (TRRP) criteria.

Budget impacts due to changes in well construction were discussed for upcoming installations under the DO23 and RL83 delivery orders. Costs will be re-programmed in each delivery order to accommodate those increased costs associated with the cluster well installations. The cluster well work plans are to be submitted to the regulators with the August 10, 2000 Encyclopedia update. With regulator concurrence, well installations may begin by October 2000. CSSA also requested that Parsons ES consider scheduling software to track contract milestones and work progression. The electronic schedule needs to be in a transportable format in which a calendar of upcoming events can easily be used by CSSA and AFCEE. CSSA also requested that Parsons ES identify a single point-of-contact to assist CSSA and AFCEE with program administration. Susan Roberts has been selected as the project liaison for all CSSA work.
