Johnston Atoll Chemical Agent Disposal approach (JACADS), the 1st absolutely built-in chemical agent disposal facility, is found on Johnston Island a few 800 miles southwest of Hawaii. JACADS accomplished ten years of operations in November 2000, which ended in the disposal of greater than 2000 lots of nerve and mustard brokers. In 1998, the military begun making plans for closure and dismantling of the ability. In 1999, the NRC was once requested to check the Army's making plans. This ebook offers an overview of deliberate and ongoing closure actions on Johnston Island in a few aspect. It additionally presents an research of the most likely implications for closure of disposal amenities at 8 continental U.S. garage sites.

S. Army, 1999b). The CSM was returned to the Army with comments and a request from EPA for the inclusion of an ecological risk scenario that contains a methodology for conducting an ecological risk assessment based on a wildlife-refuge end use (EPA, 2000). At this writing, the Army is developing a work plan for the ecological risk assessment. The assessment will be completed in late 2003. 3 More specifically, current plans call for the Army to place the site under the jurisdiction of the Air Force upon completion of JACADS closure activities.

Army, 1999d). These include the “Workforce Training Plan,” an “Operations Personnel Certification,” and related procedures. S. Army, 2000c). The key to a successful closure will be the degree to which everyone complies with the procedures. Six permit modifications required to support closure were submitted to EPA by the Army. S. Army, 2000a). These modifications address the processing of materials, mostly secondary waste (see Table 3-2). S. Army, 2000a). These modifications include use of a CMS, multiagent monitoring 18 CLOSURE AND JOHNSTON ATOLL CHEMICAL AGENT DISPOSAL SYSTEM requirement, sampling protocols, and conceptual site models and assessment methodology for human and ecological risk based closure.
