The DuPont Chambers Works site is a 700-acre active chemical plant
Subsurface contamination exists at depths greater than 3 meters.
Due to the high water table, contamination below the water line could not be quantified.
The major on-site contaminant is U-238, both in soil and water samples.
F Corral - Uranium is present; remediation is necessary.
Bldg #845 - Subsurface uranium contamination may also exist in an area approx 130’ x 150’ under the building foundation
East Area / East Burial Area – The East Burial Area is approximately 350’ x 85’. Uranium from the Manhattan project and carbon-14 not related to the Manhattan project are known to be present.
A large number of U.S. rivers and streams are contaminated with pesticides and herbicides, government scientists have found.
The chemicals are linked to cancer, birth defects and neurological disorders but the concentration of the contaminants is not likely to have an impact on people, concluded the report, released Friday. ...Agricultural streams most often showed three herbicides used primarily on farms - atrazine, metolachlor, and cyanazine- in concentrations that may affect aquatic life, the report said. ...Three herbicides commonly sprayed in cities - simazine, prometon, and tebuthiuron - were found in urban streams. ...Most stream samples and about half of the well samples contained two or more pesticides.
The potential effects of the combinations are not well understood, but the results show such research should be a priority, said Robert Gilliom, the study's senior author.

The aqueous products from the SCWO reactor, including entrained solids, are then fed to the evaporation unit, where the aqueous products from the SCWO reactor, including entrained solids, are then fed to the evaporation unit, where the mixture is heated to distill excess water. At this point, the salts that have crystallized from solution are filtered and packaged for disposal in a secure landfill. A large portion of the water distilled from the SCWO effluent is recycled back to the process.
