Willow Grove NAS Administrative Record On-Line Index

The Information Repository is a library of publications, environmental assessments, and correspondence relating to identification and assessment of sites posing a potential threat to human health or to the environment due to contamination from past hazardous materials operations.

According to the Initial Assessment Study of Naval Air Station, Willow Grove, Pennsylvania published in February 1986, "a total of nine potentially contaminated sites were identified at NAS Willow Grove. Each of the sites was evaluated with regard to contamination characteristics, migration pathways, and pollutant receptors."

The Information Repository documents the action taken by NASJRB Willow Grove to identify and clean up environmental hazards. The documents in the Information Repository are shelved in the library's Reference collection and may be read at the library during normal library hours. Documents may not be checked out; however, readers may use the library's coin-operated photocopiers to copy any portions of the documents at their own expense. Horsham Township Library also offers copies of the documents in the Information Repository in .PDF format which may be downloaded from the library's website. To access these .PDF documents, click the active links in the library's on-line index: Willow Grove NAS Administrative Record On-Line Index.

The Administrative Record File (ARF) is a collection of documents compiled by the Department of the Navy, represented by the Naval Facilities Engineering Command, to document the selection of environmental response actions conducted under the Environmental Restoration Program at military installations.
