Title: The Military Munitions Response Program – A Case Study of Munitions Response Site MU732
Author: Limani, Kevin
Abstract: ABSTRACT LIMANI, KEVIN. The Military Munitions Response Program – A Case Study of Munitions Response Site MU732 (Under the direction of committee chair Linda R. Taylor, PE) Munitions Response Site (MRS) MU732 at Nellis Air Force Base, Nevada was added to the Military Munitions Response Program’s inventory in 2003 due to a long history of soil contamination by military munitions. Comprehensive Site Evaluations and a Remedial Investigation conducted on the site identified soil concentrations of polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) and lead hazardous to human and ecological health. A Feasibility Study was developed and identified a remedial action suitable for MRS MU732. To meet the objective of reducing risk to human and ecological health, a system of land use controls would be implemented, and the burrowing owl, a sensitive species found on site, would be relocated to a suitable site in Southern Nevada. Due to the site’s remote location, physical and biological properties, and planned future use the contaminated soil at MRS MU732 would not be remediated.
