The U.S. Army completed the second Five-Year Review (FYR) for the Tripler Army Medical Center Landfill Site-02 (TAMC-02), in accordance with the Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation, and Liability Act of 1980. TAMC-02 is a former landfill located in the southwestern section of the TAMC property that was used from approximately 1944 through 1974.

The remedies implemented for this site include: installation of a landfill cap; improvements to the Moanalua Stream channel; monitoring of groundwater; and maintenance of the landfill cap and stream channel. Based on trends in groundwater contaminant concentrations indicating levels below screening criteria, groundwater monitoring was discontinued in 2013. However, groundwater at TAMC-02 cannot be used as a drinking water source as long as waste material remains at the site.

The FYR evaluated the implementation and performance of site remedies during the period from 2013 through 2018 to determine if they remain protective of human health and the environment.

The FYR was reviewed by the Hawaii Department of Health, who concurred with the protectiveness determinations presented in the report in correspondence dated June 12, 2018. In accordance with CERCLA, the site remedies will continue to be evaluated for effectiveness and protectiveness every five years until the cleanups are complete.
