Water and soil contamination at the Radford Army Ammunition Plant (RFAAP) are currently being investigated and identified. The extent of the contamination remains uncertain in many areas. Consequently, current research in and around RFAAP focuses on gaining a clearer understanding of the problem— the source of pollution, the natural setting (soil, geology, and groundwater characteristics), and other details that might affect cleanup decisions. This research will ultimately result in the best utilization of resources for remediation activities at RFAAP.
The documents on this Web site include information about contaminants of concern, response actions taken, and past milestones, as well as possible future response actions. Many more Installation Restoration Program (IRP) documents and reports are available at the IRP Information Repository.
