1.0 Introduction

1.1 Authority

In 1980, Congress enacted the Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation and Liability Act (CERCLA) 42 USC 9601 et seq. Ordnance and Explosive Wastes (OEW) are included in the CERCLA definition of pollutants and contaminants that require a remedial response. In 1983, the Environmental Restoration Defense Account (ERDA) was established by Public Law 98-212. This Congressionally directed fund was to be used for environmental restoration at Department of Defense (DOD) active installations and formerly used properties. The DOD designated the Army as the sole manager for environmental restoration at closed installations and formerly used properties. The Secretary of the Army assigned this mission to the Corps of Engineers (USACE) in 1984. The 1986 Superfund Amendments and Reauthorization Act (SARA) amended certain aspects of CERCLA, some of which directly related to OEW contamination. Chapter 160 of the SARA established the Defense Environmental Restoration Program (DERP). One of the goals specified for the DERP is "correction of environmental damage (such as detection and disposal of unexploded ordnance) which creates an imminent and substantial endangerment to the public health or welfare or to the environment." The DERP requires that a CERCLA response action be undertaken whenever such "imminent and substantial endangerment" is found at: A. A facility or site that is owned by, leased to, or otherwise possessed by the United Stated and under the jurisdiction of the Secretary of Defense.
B. A facility or site that was under the jurisdiction of the Secretary of Defense and owned by, leased to, or otherwise possessed by the United States at the time of actions leading to contamination.

C. A vessel owned or operated by the Department of Defense. The National Contingency Plan (NCP) was established by the Clean Water Act of 1972. The NCP has been revised and broadened several times since then. Its purpose is to provide the organizational structure and procedures for remedial actions to be taken in response to the presence of hazardous substances, pollutants, and contaminants at a site. Section 105 of the 1980 CERCLA states that the NCP shall apply to all response actions taken as a result of CERCLA requirements.

The March 1990 National Oil and Hazardous Substances Pollution Contingency Plan given in 40 CFR part 300 is the latest version of the NCP. Paragraph 300.120 states that "DOD will be the removal response authority with respect to incidents involving DOD military weapons and munitions under the jurisdiction, custody, and control of DOD." On 5 April 1990, U.S. Army Engineer Division, Huntsville (USAEDH) was designated as the USACE Mandatory Center of Expertise (MCX) and Design Center for Ordnance and Explosive Waste (OEW). As the MCX and Design Center for OEW, USAEDH is responsible for the design and successful implementation of all Department of the Army OEW remediations required by CERCLA. USAEDH also designs and implements OEW remediation programs for other branches of the Department of Defense when requested. In cooperation with the Huntsville Division, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers St. Louis District has been assigned the task of preparing Archives Search Reports (ASR) for those Formerly Used Defense Sites (FUDS) suspected of chemical warfare materials (CWM) contamination. 1.2 Subiect The Sharpe Army Depot Stockton Field Annex (hereafter referred to as Field Annex) was located in San Joaquin County, California, approximately four miles southwest of the City of Stockton (Map 2). The Field Annex is one of four facilities that comprised the Sharpe Army Depot. The other three facilities are the depot in Lathrop, California, the Tracy Annex in Tracy, California, and Rough and Ready Island near Stockton, California. Of the four facilities, only the Field Annex is a Formerly Used Defense Site (FUDS). The other three facilities are still active DOD sites with no formerly used portions. The Field Annex is not on the list of suspected CWM sites, but since it was associated with the Sharpe Army Depot and the Stockton Military Airfield (both of which are on the CWM site list), pertinent information found during research for these two sites is presented in this ASR. This ASR was originally intended to address the potential for CWM and OEW contamination at the depot in Lathrop, California. The Field Annex was constructed on a 100 acre, triangular shaped parcel adjacent to the southwest portion of the Stockton Military Airfield. The property was leased in the early 1940's from the City of Stockton and the County of San Joaquin. The Field Annex was used to provide maintenance, repair, and supplies for aircraft assigned to Stockton Military Airfield. Improvements to the site included structures to support the maintenance and repair mission as well as housing and support facilities for personnel assigned to the Field Annex. The leases were terminated between 1963 and 1973. The firehouse and a few warehouses constructed by DOD remain in use. Most of the DOD improvements have been removed and an industrial park has been constructed in their place.

-

This ASR presents information found during research for the Sharpe Army Depot and the Stockton Military Airfield that verifies the Field Annex was properly omitted from the list of suspected CWM sites.

As stated previously, the Field Annex is the only FUDS associated with the Sharpe Army Depot. Although the Field Annex was not on the list of suspected CWM sites, it is a FUDS associated with two facilities that are on the list of suspected CWM sites. This ASR presents information relative to the Field Annex found during research for the Sharpe Army Depot and the Stockton Military Airfield. Nothing was found during research or the site inspection to suspect storage or use of CWM or OEW at the Field Annex. This report presents the history of the site, description and characterization of the immediate surrounding area, real estate ownership information, findings of a visual field survey, and CWMIOEW site analysis, including an evaluation of potential ordnance contamination. The report is intentionally brief. The known use of the site and the types of buildings constructed give no cause to suspect CWM or OEW contamination on any portion of the site.

2.0 Previous Site lnvestiaations

An Inventory Project Report (INPR) for this site was prepared by the Sacramento District, Corps of Engineers. The INPR identified several potential sources of HTW contamination.

3.0 Site and Site Area Description

3.1 Location The Field Annex was located approximately 4 miles southwest of the City of Stockton, San Joaquin County, California (see Map 2). The 100 acre triangular shaped site is adjacent to the southwest portion of the Stockton Municipal Airport. 3.2 Past Uses of the Site The site was used for farming prior to DOD use. Photographs and maps of the Stockton Military Airfield give the impression that the Field Annex was part of the airfield. The following photo analysis and map analysis were performed specifically for the airfield but give an accurate description of the Field Annex site. 3.2.1 Interpretation of Aerial Photoaraphv Photo analysis and land use interpretation were performed at the site with the use of aerial photography from 1941, 1958, 1967, 1970, and 1990. The approximate negative scale of the photography is as follows. 1941 1958 & 70 (oblique) 1967 1970 1990
1" = 490' NO SCALE 1" = 2000' 1" = 1000' 1" = 1000'

The Stockton East and West, California USGS quadrangle sheets were used as a reference for the photography. Site visits and other investigations determined no specific area of concern regarding CWM storage or disposal. The photography from 1941, both the 1" = 490 scale and the oblique photography, shows only a portion of the airfield. The photography indicates construction of facilities such as runways, taxiways, roads, buildings, etc. The base was experiencing major expansion at the photo time period and several areas indicate disturbed ground and open storage. The photography does not give any indication that CWM were stored or disposed of on the site. The 1958 oblique photo shows the airfield and the surrounding area with no major construction apparent. The primary land use around the base appears to be agriculture. The 1967 photography indicates changes to the tarmac areas. Many of the buildings, pavements, storage areas, etc. southeast of the main runways have been demolished and returned to agriculture. Major changes in the runway system have also occurred.

The photography indicates the primary land use around the perimeter of the base to be agriculture. No indication of chemical warfare material storage or disposal could be noted. The 1970 photography indicates no significant change from the 1967 photography. The 1990 photography indicates significant changes in the land use in and around the airfield. Major runway changes have taken place since the 1970's. Agriculture land around the perimeter of runways is fallow. Portions of the area south of the runways previously abandoned have been converted to military helicopter tarmac and complex. Significant industrial, commercial, and residential development has also taken place in the vicinity of the airfield. No CWM storage or disposal could be noted from the photography.
3.2.2. Map Analvsis

Historical maps collected of the site include USGS quadrangle maps from 1952 and 1968 and several 1944 construction maps. The 1941 maps show detailed plans of tarmac design and layout, buildings, hangers, major roads, sloughs and rivers around the perimeter of the tarmac. No CWM storage or disposal could be noted on the maps. The 1952 USGS quadrangle maps indicate the airfield as the Stockton Municipal Airport and the Sharpe General Depot. The area around the perimeter of the airfield is agriculture land. The nearest significant residential area is French Camp approximately one mile southwest of the airfield. The Tidewater Southern and Western Pacific railroads run generally north and south immediately to the west of the field. French Camp Slough runs generally west to east immediately south of the site. No CWM storage or disposal could be noted from the maps. The 1968 USGS quadrangle maps indicate the airfield as Stockton Metropolitan Airport and Sharpe Army Depot (Field Annex). The tarmac configuration experienced major change from the 1952 maps. The Sharpe Army Depot expanded to the south with the addition of an armory complex and the Metropolitan Airport took over areas previously part of the depot immediately south of the runways and constructed several structures. The area around the perimeter of the airfield is primarily agriculture. However, significant industrial, residential, and commercial development took place in the vicinity. No CWM storage or disposal could be determined from the maps.
3.3 Current Uses of the Site

The Field Annex is now an industrial park.
3.4 Demoaraphics of the Area 3.4.1 Center of Activitv

The location of the Field Annex is approximately four miles southwest of the City of Stockton, California. The centers of activity in the vicinity of the site include a regional sports field immediately east of the airport, the San Joaquin Hospital approximately two miles north of the site and various commercial businesses.

3.4.2 Population Density The total population of Stockton, California from the 1990 census data is approximately 1,9171 sq. mi.

Typical businesses in the vicinity of the site include various service type businesses that serve the airline industry. These businesses include hotelslmotels, restaurants, hospitals, warehouses and light industry, aircraft sales, and aircraft restoration. 3.4.4 Tvpe of Industry Industry in the vicinity of the airport include aircraft restoration, propeller manufacturing and various light industries. 3.4.5 Tvpe of Housing Housing in the vicinity is composed primarily of single family housing. The majority of the housing is located three miles to the north of the site in the city of Stockton, California. 3.4.6 New Development in the Area

New development in the area includes a regional sports field to the east of the site and a new auto parts manufacturing plant to be located north of the site. No new residential areas are anticipated in the vicinity of the site at this time. 3.4.7 Tv~ical Cross-Section of Population The total population of Stockton, California from the 1990 census information is 210,943. The percent of those under the age of 17 is 32%, over 65 years is 10.5% and the median age is 29. Approximately 58% of the population is white, 25% hispanic and 10% black. The remaining population is American Indian and Asian. Approximately 68,000 occupied housing units with a median dollar value of $107,200 exists in the city of Stockton, California.

4.0 Phvsical Characteristics of the Site

The Field Annex site lies within the San Joaquin portion of the Central Valley of California. The Central Valley comprises about 20,000 square miles and extends from Red Bluff, California on the north to near Bakersfield on the south, a distance of almost 400 miles. The average width of the valley is about 50 miles, and the valley is bounded on the north by low-lying hills; on the northeast by a volcanic plateau of the Cascade Range; on the west by the Coast Ranges, on the east by the Sierra Nevada Range and on the south by the Coast Ranges and the Tehachapi Mountains. Roughly the northern one-third of the valley is known as the Sacramento Valley and the southern two-thirds as the San Joaquin Valley (Page, 1986). Geologically, the Central Valley is a large, northwestward trending, asymmetric structural trough that has been filled with as much as 30,000 feet of sediment in the San Joaquin Valley, and over 50,000 feet in the Sacramento Valley. These sediments range in age from Jurassic to Holocene and form a great wedge that is thickest in the center of the valley and feathers out against the crystalline rocks of the Sierra Nevada foothills a few miles east of the San Joaquin County line. Granitic rocks crop out along most of the eastern and southeastern flanks of the Central Valley (Calif. Dept. Water Resources, 1965). The site is underlain by about 100 feet of Quaternary alluvium which has been deposited by the Calaveras River and its tributaries (Atwater, 1982). These alluvial deposits were laid down by local streams flowing from the Sierra Nevada and depositing material on their growing alluvial fans. The sand and gravel stringers represent active channels of the streams in which the coarse-grained sediments were deposited. Silt and clay deposits represent the overbank areas between the streams. In these areas deposition only occurred during times of flooding. The courses of the streams and their channel deposits shifted continuously during the formation of the alluvial fans, and an interfingered network of sand and gravel stringers resulted. A description of the upper 2,500 feet of sediments underlying the site is presented in Table 4-1.

Site soils represent alluvial fan deposits of the Calaveras River and smaller creeks in the area. These soils consist of sand, silt, clay and gravel which are laterally and vertically discontinuous.

4.3.1 Ground Water Large quantities of ground water are withdrawn from the permeable strata of the Quaternary and Tertiary sediments shown in Table 4-1. Although the Quaternary alluvium sand stringers yield large quantities of ground water insome wells the major sources of ground water in this area are from the sediments of the Laguna and Mehrten Formations. Ground water in the uppermost aquifer, the Calaveras alluvium, flows from east to west at the site. Ground water levels in the region have been dropping steadily since development began. Water level data from wells in the area indicated that the water table was about 20 feet below ground surface in 1976. 4.3.2 Surface Water French Camp Slough crosses the southwest corner of the site. A gaging station on French Camp Slough is located just upstream of the area near French Camp. The highest discharge for this station was recorded on 2 December 1950 at 3,390 cfs from a period of record beginning in 1950 through 1992.

4.4

Weather

The site lies within the South Coast Air Basin, which encompasses approximately 8,630 square miles in southern California. The climate of the basin is classified as mediterranean, characterized by a pattern of cool wet winters and warm dry summers. Typical dry summers are caused by a semipermanent high-pressure cell located over the eastern Pacific Ocean. This system generally blocks storms from moving into the basin during the summer months. Climatological data for the area are summarized in TABLE 4-2. Data was collected at the National Weather Service meteorological station at Stockton Metropolitan Airport, which is located on the site.

There are also four sensitive natural communities and 21 species that are candidates for federal listing (see list, Appendix C-2). Other state or federally listed species may also occur in the area. An on-site inspection by appropriate state and federal personnel may be necessary to verify the presence, absence or location of listed species or natural communities if remedial action is recommended as part of the final ASR.

5.0 Real Estate

5.1 DOD Ownership Based upon the information contained in the INPR, the Field Annex was acquired by lease from the City of Stockton and the County of San Joaquin during the early 1940's.
5.2 Present Ownership

The five leases comprising the 100 acre Field Annex site were terminated between 1963 and 1973. The site is currently an industrial park.

6.0 OEWICWM Site Analysis

6.1 Brief History of the Field Annex The Field Annex was constructed during the early 1940's for the purpose of providing maintenance, repair, and supplies for aircraft stationed at the Stockton Military Airfield. Housing and related facilities for personnel stationed at the Field Annex were also constructed. Buildings on the site included hangers, paint shop and wash rack, shop, photo lab, general purpose warehouses, NCO open mess, commissary, petroleum lab, flammable material storage, AJC trainer building, service station, general instruction building, barracks, motor repair shop, and fire station. The lease on a portion of the site expired in 1963 but was renewed in order for the site to be used to support actions in Vietnam. That lease was terminated in 1969. Final disposal of all DOD land holdings was accomplished in 1975.
6.2 Historical Summaw of OEWfCWM Activities

There is no historical evidence that OEW or CWM was used or stored at the Field Annex site. 6.3 Archives Research Methods and Records Review lnformation related to the Field Annex was found in the INPR and incidental to research efforts for the Sharpe Army Depot, Lathrop, California and the Stockton Military Airfield. Only the documents that describe the status of this site are listed. Reference to the four facilities that comprised the Sharpe Army Depot was found in a brochure in Record Group 77 at the Washington National Records Center. lnformation regarding the mission of the Field Annex was found in articles from the Stockton Record. The list of buildings constructed on the Field Annex site was found in a property disposal letter included with the INPR. 6.4 Summary of Interviews After our research showed the Sharpe Army Depot consisted of four facilities and the intended site in Lathrop, California is an active DOD site, a telephone call was made to Mr. Rick Tuskes, Public Affairs Officer, at the depot in Lathrop, California to get more information about the facilities. Mr. Tuskes indicated that only the Field Annex is a FUDS. The other three facilities are active DOD sites with no formerly used portions. The following interview information is taken from the Stockton Military Airfield ASR.

All conversations with personnel associated with either Stockton Military Airfield or Stockton Metropolitan Airport provided no indication that OEW or CWM have ever been found in the area that comprised the former Stockton Field. Specifically, there is no evidence of OEW or CWM in the areas of the former ordnance area, the pistol ranges, or the skeet ranges (see Map M-2 & M-3). A conversation with Mr. Dan DeAngelis, the present Stockton Metropolitan Airport manager is summarized below. Mr. DeAngelis was born and raised in the Stockton area. Sometime during the 196567 time period (most likely in the summer of 1967) he underwent gas training at Stockton Field as part of his Army Reserve training. However, he was unsure as to the exact location of the gas-training building. From 1969 to 1974 he was a flight instructor at the Stockton Metropolitan Airport, and from 1976 to 1980 he was employed by the county in several jobs at the airport. He assumed the position as manager of the airport in 1990. Mr. DeAngelis has no recollection of CWM ever being uncovered in any area associated with Stockton Field; however, he does know the location of several underground gasoline tanks. Most of the underground storage tanks have been removed, but contamination still is evident. Mr. DeAngelis informed us that in 1979-80 the former airport manager disposed of five 55-gallon drums that contained information, including facility drawings, on Stockton Field. He was unsure of the exact content of any of this material. (Sacramento District records indicate that all the facility plans, which were once in their possession, had been provided to the airport.) 6.5 Site lns~ection On 7 April 1993, the St. Louis District Corps of Engineers ASR team responsible for the Stockton Military Airfield report conducted a site inspection of the Field Annex site in conjunction with their inspection of the Stockton Military Airfield. Their inspection did not reveal any evidence of OEW or CWM contamination.

7.0 Evaluation of Ordnance Contamination

As stated previously, the Field Annex was not on the list of suspected CWM sites. This ASR was prepared because the Field Annex was associated with the Sharpe Army Depot and the Stockton Military Airfield, both of which are on the list of suspected CWM sites. There was nothing found during research, air photo reviews, or the site inspection to indicate that CWM or OEW was used or stored on this site.

8.0 Conclusions and Recommendations

8.1 General

Based on information found during research for the Sharpe Army Depot and the Stockton Military Airfield, the Field Annex was properly omitted from the list of suspected CWM sites. Nothing was found to suspect CWM or OEW contamination at this site.
8.2 Recommendation

No further action is recommended at this site. The site Risk Assessment value is RAC 5.

SUMMARY O F CONVERSATION:

1 made a call to the Sharpe Army Depot hoping to clear up some of the confusion about which portion of the original Sharpe General Depot we are to investigate.

I told Mr. Tuskes that our research indicated the Sharpe General Depot consisted of four sites; the main depot, the Tracy Annex, the Field Annex at Stockton Airport, and a portion of Rough and Ready Island. He verified this information. I then asked him if the there were any real estate changes in these sites from their original configurations. He indicated that the original depot, the Tracy Annex, and Rough and Ready Island have not changed and are still owned by DOD. All three are still active sites. The Tracy Annex is currently undergoing expansion.
The only site that was sold to private individuals is the Field Annex at Stockton Airport.

SITE SURVEY SUMMARY SHEET FOR DERP-FUDS SITE NO. J09CAO94900 SHARPE GENElWL DEPOT, STOCKTON STORAGE ACTIVITY SITE NAME: Sharpe General Depot, Stockton Storage Activity. Also formerly known as Sharpe General Depot, Stockton Annex. Its three locations are now known as the Port of Stockton, Rough and Ready Island, and Blackslough Landing. LOCATION: The site is in central California, San Joaquin County, on the south bank of the San Joaquin River and the Stockton Deep Water Channel (Figure 1). Two locations, the Port of Stockton and Rough and Ready Island are within the city limits of Stockton on its southwest side. The third location is at Blackslough Landing opposite Fourteenmile Slough. SITE HISTORY: Initial acquisition of lands was authorized by a War Department directive issued 30 August 1941. During the period from 1941 to 1944, fee title to 277.07 acres and easement rights over 2.90 acres were acquired by the United States by purchase and condemnation. In addition, while the installation was active, the United States entered into three leases with the Stockton Port District for use of a total of 518.70 acres, in five parcels. Leasehold interests for four of the parcels were terminated between 1944 and 1947, with control of the land returned to the Stockton Port District. Control of the fifth parcel was returned to the Stockton Port District with the termination of the final lease on 12 September 1948. It is unknown what improvements, if any, were made on the leased parcels during the tenure of the United States. Accountability for 20.07 acres of fee land known as "the hospital arean was assumed by the War Assets Administration on 29 July 1948. The disposition of this acreage is unknown, although correspondence available to the Corps of Engineers (COE) Real Estate Division indicates that it had been requested by the Stockton Port District. 138.56 fee acres and the easement rights in 2.90 acres were transferred from the Department of the Army to the Department of the Air Force on 1 December 1954 to become Stockton Air Force Station (SAFS). The remaining 118.44 acres of fee-owned land with improvements were conveyed by the Secretary of the Army to the Stockton Port District by quitclaim deed dated 12 December 1956. On 14 December 1956, the Secretary of the Air Force quitclaimed the acreage of SAFS to the Stockton Port District. In summary, the lands were acquired between 1941 and 1944; and disposed of between 1944 and 1956 to the Stockton Port District. A copy of the General Site Plan and Building Use Map with Index Sheet to Detail Site and Building Use Map, dated 31 December 1955, was obtained from the Port. The Index Sheet lists 53 structures of kinds common to military storage facilities, such as warehouses, fire station, gasoline stations, repair shops, paint shop, barracks, mess halls, service club,

administration building, etc., built between 1941 and 1954. Today, eight buildings remain: four large warehouses, three maintenance buildings, and the former officers mess -- the others were razed to make way for construction of Port facilities. The remaining buildings are owned by, and in current use by, the Port of Stockton or its tenants. The lands are used and owned by the Port of Stockton, the Naval Communication Station, and farmers.

SITE VISIT: Mr. Roger Norris, Earth Technology Corporation, visited the three locations of the site on 18 October 1990. Mr. George C. Winges, who worked at the site during its active years, accompanied Norris to two of the three site locations: the Port of Stockton and the Naval Communication Station, Rough and Ready Island.
At the Port of Stockton [telephone (209) 946-0246], they met with: Ms. Patricia A. Huff, General Manager, Trade and Property Development Ms. Charlene Wall, Property Management Coordinator Mr. Richard H. Martucci, Marketing Manager. The Port provided a history book, a color promotional booklet, a copy of a U.S. Army General Site Plan and Building Use Map for Sharpe General Depot - Stockton Annex, an index sheet with details for the map, and copies of four aerial photos of the Annex. The Port representatives stated that there are no underground storage tanks on the Port property (they use natural gas for heating). Martucci drove Noms and Winges to inspect and photograph the eight remaining DOD-built buildings. Four of the buildings are warehouses allegedly 187,000 square feet in size that were used to store automotive equipment, and are now used in sulfur processing operations by Union Chemical and H.J. Baker & Bros. Three buildings are former maintenance shops, now two are used for storage and one for maintenance. Finally, the former Officers Mess has been renovated and expanded to become the present Commercial Exchange Club. The warehouses and the two storage buildings are not in good condition, but present no hazard. At Naval Communication Station, Rough and Ready Island, Norris and Winges met with LCDR Roland S. Moreau, Public Works Officer [telephone (209) 944-0271]. Moreau stated that no part of Rough and Ready Island has been occupied by the Army, and that it has always been under Navy control. The parcel is, therefore, ineligible for the Defense Environmental Restoration Program. At Blackslough Landing, on the south bank of the San Joaquin River opposite Fourteenmile Slough, Norris found the 238.98-acre parcel to be a mixture of cultivated and uncultivated land undistinguished from its surroundings. There was no visible evidence of DOD occupation. Winges believed it may have been a place used to put material dredged from the ship channel.

At the San Joaquin County Environmental Health Office (in the city of Stockton), Noms found that H.J. Baker & Bros.' sulfur "prilling" operations (making 118-inch pellets for a soil additive) had resulted in sulfur runoff with surface drainage. The Regional Water Quality Control Board advised them how to handle it properly. It was also found (EMCON, 1989) that the Tank Terminal Area of the Petroleum Storage and Handling Terminal of the Port of Stockton has caused some groundwater contamination. The Tank Terminal Area is outside the site, but adjacent to it, on the west side of Stork Road. The area has been used for petroleum terminal activities for more than 40 years. Tenants included ARCO, Stockton Petroleum, Time Oil, Tesoro, Southern Pacific Pipelines, ST Services, Union Oil, and Union Pacific. Products were leaded, unleaded, and premium gasolines, jet fuel, alcohol, and various additives. Groundwater flows southeastward from the tank area toward a corner of the Port site. The groundwater surface elevation was 3 feet to 6 feet below mean sea level and had floating product thicknesses of 0.1 feet to 0.3 feet. The DOD had no connection with the sulfur or the petroleum and they are mentioned only for completeness. There is no evidence of hazardousltoxic waste, building debris, or explosive ordnance remaining from DOD use. CATEGORY OF HAZARD: NOFA. PROJECT DESCRIPTION: No project proposed.

1. Initial acquisition of lands was authorized by a War Department directive issued 30 August 1941. Between 1941 and 1944, fee title to 277.07 acres and easement rights over 2.90 acres were acquired by the United States by purchase and condemnation. In addition, while the installation was active, the United States entered into three leases with the Stockton Port District for use of a total of 518.70 acres, in five parcels. 2. The site was called Sharpe General Depot, Stockton Storage Activity and Sharpe General Depot, Stockton Annex. It was used as a military storage facility, by the Department of the Army. It was served by the Port of Stockton and the Santa Fe, Western Pacific, and Southern Pacific Railroads. Between 1941 and 1954, some 53 structures of all kinds appropriate for a military storage facility were built. Only 8 buildings remain, all others having been razed to make way for construction of Port facilities. The remaining buildings are in current use by the Port of Stockton or its tenants. There are no known underground storage tanks or environmental hazards due to DOD occupation. 3. Four of the leasehold interests were terminated between 1944 and 1947, with control of the land returned to the Stockton Port District. Control of the fifth parcel was returned to the Port District with the termination of the final lease on 12 September 1948. It is unknown what improvements, if any, were made on the 518.70 acres leased during the tenure of the United States. The leased parcel on Rough and Ready Island is now part of an active DOD installation, the Naval Communication Station. Accountability for 20.07 acres of fee land known as "the hospital area" was assumed by the War Assets Administration on 29 July 1948. The disposition of this acreage is unknown, although correspondence available to the COE Real Estate Division indicates that it had been requested by The Stockton Port District. 138.56 fee acres and easement rights in 2.90 acres were transferred from the Department of the Army to the Department of the Air Force on 1 December 1954 to become Stockton Air Force Station (SAFS).

were acquired between 1941 and 1944; and disposed of between 1944 and 1956 to the Stockton Port District.

Based on the foregoing findingsof fad, the site has bear determined to be formerly used by the bOD. Therefore, it is eligible for the Defense Environmental Restoration Program for s e d Defense S i t e s , established under 10 U.S.C. 2701 et q., with the exception Formerly U of the portion belonging to the Naval Communication Station.

SITE SURVEY SUMMARY SHEET FOR DEW-FZTDS SITE NO. J09CA094800 SITE NAME: Sharpe Army Depot - Field Annex.

LOCATION: The site is in central California, in San Joaquin County, approximately 3.5 miles southeast of the city of Stockton, adjacent to the Stockton Metropolitan Airport
(Figure 1).

SITE HISTORY: The former Sharpe Army Depot Field Amex was located on a loolacre triangular parcel leased from the City of Stockton and the County of San Joaquin in the early 1940s. It was used as an Army post during World War Il and again during the Vietnam War. Various portions of the site were returned to the original owners between 1963 and 1975 as the leases were terminated. The Installation Layout Map with Building Schedule shows some 64 buildings for living and support facilities including barracks, BOQ, family housing, mess halls, dispensary, chapel, theatre, service club, recreational facilities, fire station, warehouses, etc. The post had its own water supply and sewage treatment plant. Underground and aboveground fuel tanks and electrical transformers are presumed to have been on site. Few of the original structures remain. Most of the buildings have been removed and the site is under development as an industrial park. The original lease No. W-59-qm-644 dated 15 July 1940 between the United States and the City of Stockton (which covered the most densely developed part of the site) was later amended by Supplemental Agreement No. 9 dated 28 December 1973. That agreement provided in part a payment of $102,000 to the County of San Joaquin "...in consideration of the difference in value of said improvements and the estimated cost of the restoration required by the lease." Paragraph 4 of Supplemental Agreement No. 9 further provided a release to the Government of all liability and claims for the restoration of site as required by the original lease.
SITE VISIT: On 12 March 1987, a site visit was made by Kent Westover of the Army Corps of Engineers Installation Support Section and MAJ John Sutcliffe, an IMA officer with a t e r tank, pump houses, and a few the Sacramento District. The post firehouse structure, w warehouses were found to be still in use. The sewage treatment plant remained, but was not in use. The sewage plant site and access road has been purchased by a private party. Most other stpctures had been removed. Areas where fuels or toxic materials may have been used or stored were in the following structures:

Structure Number

Structure Name Electric Substation (PG&E) Photo Lab Petroleum Lab Flammable Material Storage Service Station Motor Repair Shop Fire Station Fire Station Paint Shop Sewage Treatment Plant Sewage Beds Paint Shop and Wash Rack

According to Mr. Westover and Maj. Sutcliffe, these structures, except for one firehouse, had been removed from the site, dates not known, and their foundations possibly covered by new construction for the Airport Industrial Park. On 8 November 1990, telephone calls were made by Earth Technology to Sharpe Environmental Office, San Joaquin County Planning Dept. and Public Works Dept., and the Stockton Metropolitan Airport Manager. It was learned that the firehouse, warehouses, pump houses, and water tower zre still in use, and not a hazard. It was learned that nearly a l l building heating was done by natural gas and electricity (not by oil furnaces requiring oil a n k s ) . Development of the site into the Airport Industrial Park is about forty storage t percent complete.

CATEGORY OF HAZARD: NOFA.
This category was assigned because the lease (actually, a supplemental agreement to the lease) releases the Government of all liability and claims for site restoration on the most densely developed area. Moreover, the site has subsequently been used without complaint for probably 17 years and is under development as an industrial park. The sewage treatment plant, not covered by that lease, has been purchased by a private party.

1. The former Sharpe Army Depot Field Annex was located on a 100-acre triangular parcel about 3.5 miles southeast of the city of Stockton, adjacent to the present Stockton Metropolitan Airport on its southwest side. The site comprised five principal parcels leased from the County of San Joaquin and the City of Stockton. The earliest leases began in 1940 and the latest in 1966. 2; The Sharpe Army Depot Field Annex site was used as an Army post during World War I1 and again during the Vietnam War. Improvements included temporary-type operational buildings, general purpose warehouses, troop barracks without mess, service station, and wash rack, fire station, utility lines and systems, vehicle parking areas, roads and hardstand areas. Presently, the firehouse, a water tank, pump houses, and a few warehouses remain. 3. The leases terminated between 1963 and 1975 and the property reverkd to the County of San Joaquin and the City of Stockton. The lease was amended by Supplemental agreement No. 9 dated 28 December 1973. That agreement provided in part a payment of $102,000 to the County of San Joaquin ". . .in consideration of said improvements and the estimatdcost of the restoration required by the lease." Paragraph 4 of Supplemental Agreement No. 9 further provided a release to the Government of all liability and claims for the restoration by the original lease.

DETERMINATION
Based on the foregoing findings of fact, the site has been determined to be formerly used by the DOD. Therefore, it is eligible for the Defense Environmental Restoration Program for Formerly Used Defense 'Sites, established under 10 U.S.C. 2701 et seq.
