This report presents the results of collaborative studies of groundwater contamination, remediation, and monitoring at the former Fort Ord Army Base in northern Monterey County, California. These complementary, integrated studies were conducted at the site by principal investigators from three different institutions the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory Environmental Restoration Division, Physical and Biological Sciences Division at the University of California Santa Cruz and Earth Sciences Division, Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory. These collaborative studies resulted in assessments of groundwater flow monitoring technologies analyses of aquifer response, groundwater flow, and plume evolution simulation of in-situ permeable flow sensors for measuring groundwater velocity and remote sampling and analyses of inorganic contaminants in the groundwater. The first three assessments addressed concerns with organic contaminants previously detected at the site, while the fourth was designed to determine the applicability of the remote sampling system developed to monitor organic contaminants to the monitoring of inorganic contaminants that had also been detected at elevated levels in the general study area. Four separate reports were developed from this project and the results are combined in this integrated summary report.
- Inorganic Chemistry
- Military Forces and Organizations
- Water Pollution and Control
