No significant concerns were noted during the site visit on 10 and 11 November 2018. Findings and conclusions discussed in this Phase I EBS are based on a site reconnaissance, an offsite reconnaissance of nearby properties, a regulatory records review, and a review of ownership/land use history. Based on findings of this Phase I EBS, it is concluded that no Recognized Environmental Conditions are identified on the Air Force-owned portion of the Subject Site, Based on the data reviewed, the Subject Site is considered Category 1, an area where no release or disposal of hazardous substances or petroleum products has occurred (including no migration of these substances from adjacent areas).
