Abstract:

The Northwest Boundary ContainmentTreatment System Operational Assessment described herein has been prepared to document and evaluate the performance related to the boundary system operations. This report covers the system operating period of FY88. Ground-water contamination problems have existed in the area of the Northwest boundary of Rocky Mountain Arsenal RMA since the mid 1950s, when investigations were conducted by the Army Corps of Engineers. In 1975, a ground-water surveillance program for RMA was established. This regional surveillance task included the monitoring of wells in the arsenal boundary areas. Since that time, several problem definition studies and design investigations have been conducted by RMA and the Corps of Engineers. Subsequently, a ground-water surveillance program was initiated in 1978 specifically for the Northwest boundary.
