This Work Plan is an offpost private well inventory of the area north, northwest and west of Rocky Mountain Arsenal. The inventory area is bounded on the south by 80th Avenue offpost areas only, on the west by the South Platte River, on the east by Second Creek, and on the north by the convergence of Second Creek with the South Platte River. Based on previous investigations by others, the inventory area was defined so as to encompass the area of offpost RMA-related chemical contamination in ground water to the north, northwest and west of RMA, as well as to include additional buffer areas of up to about two miles beyond the area of RMA related ground water contamination. Tri-County Health Department previously performed a well survey for the area north and northwest of the RMA boundary to identify private wells and to define the well uses. The previous work enabled prioritization of the wells for subsequent sampling and analysis for RMA-related chemicals, which will be performed in the work program described herein. Based on the results of previously performed laboratory testing results offpost RMA-related ground water contamination is generally limited to shallow ground water to the north, northwest and west of RMA. The deep aquifers generally greater than 100 feet, are for the most part not contaminated by RMA related chemicals.
