Area 5 Tanker Investigation

In December 2002, contractors dug a series of trenches, looking for buried tankers in the southern portion of Area 5. They dug 10 trenches, 20 feet deep, but did not find any tankers. They did find 81 buried drums, which were removed and disposed of off-site at a hazardous waste landfill.
