This ASR compiles information obtained through historical research at various archives and records holding facilities. The investigation was primarily a textual, cartographic and photographic research and analysis effort. It also makes use of interviews with individuals associated with the property and its operations. No sampling or quantitative field assessment techniques were conducted. The research directed efforts towards determining if there is a potential for the presence of hazardous contamination as a result of previous use, storage, and/or disposal of materials used at Fort Detrick. The research places emphasis on establishing the types, quantities, and locations of those activities. This information gained through this process will be used to develop recommendations for further environmental investigations and, if necessary, remedial actions at Fort Detrick.

Preliminary Archives Search Report Findings for Use/Testing of 2,4,5-T Compounds
Date: 27 October 2010 - Final
[PDF]

Description: The Army Environmental Center (AEC) and the Fort Detrick U.S. Army Garrison requested the Ordnance and Technical Services Branch of the St. Louis District of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (CEMVS-EC-P) to prepare an Archives Search Report (ASR) to document the use and testing of 2,4,5-Trichlorophenoxyacetic acid (2,4,5-T) and its family of agents at Fort Detrick along with other activities at the installation. The archive search was required as these records were not retained at Fort Detrick. This report represents the Preliminary Findings regarding the use and testing of 2,4,5-Trichlorophenoxyacetic acid (2,4,5-T) at Fort Detrick based on historical documents located to date. While it is still early in the multi-month ASR research process, the research team expedited locating field test reports regarding 2,4,5-T. The documents found to date may not be comprehensive of all the material potentially available and these finding may be augmented with documents located through the additional comprehensive archival research planned to be completed in the coming months.
