Notice of Third Five-Year Review for Former Kirksville Air Force Station

Kansas City District
Published Dec. 5, 2023

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE), as the lead agency, is initiating the Third Five-Year Review at the former Kirksville Air Force Station (KAFS). The Five-Year Review Team includes the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Region 7, the Missouri Department of Natural Resources (MDNR) and other local agencies.  Components of the selected remedy include enhanced biodegradation with monitoring and alternative water supply.  

The selected remedy addresses groundwater plumes contaminated with trichloroethene (TCE), cis-1-2-dichloroethene (cDCE) and vinyl chloride (VC) as identified in the September 2009 Decision Document. A vapor intrusion monitoring program was added to the remedy via an Explanation of Significant Differences (ESD) amended to the Decision Document in 2022. A review of the selected remedy with regard to protection of human health and the environment will be included in the Five-Year Report.  

This Five-Year Review is being conducted as a matter of policy.  The selected remedy will take more than five years to achieve the remedial action objective, but will, upon completion, result in unlimited use and unrestricted exposure. The report for this Five-Year Review will be made available to the public after finalization in December 2024.
