Abstract:

The purpose of this report is to evaluate the potential for ground water contaminants in the south plants to migrate towards and into Lakes Ladora and lower derby. The report includes information of the following Ground water flow Ground water and surface water relationships Nature and extent of contamination in lake water, sediment, and biota environmental behavior of contaminants detected. Conclusions include the following Whether ground water contamination has or will migrate into the Lakes cannot be determined conclusively because of data gaps The primary pathways for contaminants may be surface water sediment transport processes. Contamination levels have not increased significantly over the past several years
