Abstract:

The objective of the Rocky Mountain Arsenal RMA Supplemental Field Study SFS is to resolve the biomagnification factor BMF dispute issue that was raised by the Environmental Protection Agency EPA upon its review of the Draft Final Integrated Endangerment AssessmentRisk Characterization IEARC Report EBASCO 1993a. The program involves two phases SFS-Phase I and SFS-Phase II. SFS-Phase I will involve collecting and analyzing biota tissue samples from the RMA area of dispute AOD, a specific area over which the ecological risk characterization in the August 1993 Draft Final IEARC is contested as defined by the RMA Council see Section 2.4. Additional sampling of selected species will also be conducted in the part of the eagle exposure area that is in the Bald Eagle Management Area BEMA or April 1993 prairie dog towns, but outside the AOD. If SFS-Phase I work indicates that unacceptable risks to biota are likely, the supplemental study may proceed with Phase II to collect additional tissue and soil data to estimate field BMFs for selected species. jg p9
