Abstract : The purpose of this small-scale field study was to assess the potential of the UV/ozone process for reducing the concentration of organic contaminants in RMA ground water in a continuous flow system. The specific purpose of this report is to present the interim results of the limited small-scale field study. A UV/ozone ultrox field unit was acquired and set up in bldg. 802 at RMA. This unit had a flow capacity of approximately 1000GPO. Ground water was obtained from a designated well and pumped through the ultrox unit. Operating parameters (ozone) concentration, liquid flow, UV intensity etc.) were varied for each RM on the basis of information obtained from the previous runs which had been evaluated through the use of a computer-aided analysis procedure. Influent, midstream and effluent samples were collected and analyzed. All available data were evaluated for use in this report.
