Abstract:

This document presents a summary of the Task Order scope of work and technical approach for the Hydrazine Blending and Storage Facility HBSF interim Response Action IRA. This plan also describes performance specifications, design objectives, and operation and maintenance requirements for the hydrazine wastewater treatment system to be implemented at the HBSF. The HBSF at the Rocky Mountain Arsenal RMA, near Denver, Colorado, was constructed in 1959 and operated for 23 years from 1959 to 1982. The 10-acre site consists of two tank yards, each completely surrounded by security fencing. The yards are connected by two overhead pipelines. The HBSF was used as a depot to receive, blend, store, and distribute hydrazine fuels. The primary operation was blending of anhydrous hydrazine and unsymmetrical dimethylhydrazine UDMH to produce Aerozine 50. The materials were manufactured elsewhere and shipped to RMA for blending. Blending operations were not continuous and occurred in response to requests by the U.S. Air Force
