Abstract : This document describes the process and results of the alternatives assessment conducted for the M-1 settling basins. These three basins are located in the south plants area and are a direct source of a contamination to the ground water. The goal of this assessment is to evaluate alternatives based upon such factors as (1) the protection of human health and the environment, (2) mitigation of the threat to human health, and (3) cost. The assessment is divided into the following sections: (1) introduction; (2) site background and the results of current and previous investigations; (3) identification and evaluation of interim action technologies; (4) development and evaluation of alternatives; (5) cost estimates; and (6) conclusions. The preferred technologies are 1) in situ vitrification and 2) chemical.
