I was Station @ Camp Market ( Ascom Depot) HQ & HQ 20th General Support Group , was all over Korea a different times with Supplies and doing Supply Aduits.
Camp Market was in the vicinity of Inchon and was a staging area and breakbulk point for units stationed along the demilitarized zone
Most incomprehensible is the omission of Camp Market, which is located in the middle of a residential area in Incheon. Camp Market was found to be the site of non-transparent disposal of highly hazardous materials in documents published by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. The location of a waste treatment facility, it processed more than 500 drums of hazardous materials in 1987 alone, including mercury, asbestos, and sodium sulfate solution. In 1989, it was cited by the U.S. General Accounting Office after the U.S. military merely stated that it had disposed of 448 drums of toxic polychlorinated biphenyl without leaving any record on how it was disposed of or where.
Perhaps as a result of this, a study of the area around the base conducted by Incheon’s Bupyeong District in 2008 detected benzene, lead, and other toxic materials at anywhere from 2.4 to 12 times the standard levels in the soil and underground water. Total petroleum hydrocarbons were detected at a full 32 times standard levels near an apartment complex bordering on the waste treatment site. A 2009 Korea Environment Corporation study found toxic trichloroethylene and tetrachloroethylene, the same chemicals detected at Camp Carroll, at 2.7 and 2.3 times standard levels, respectively. Moreover, Camp Market is suspected of being the site to which the chemicals buried at Camp Carroll were moved. There also need to be document examinations and soil testing to answer the defoliant allegations raised regarding Camp Carroll.
