Abstract : Geotechnical surveys have been recently completed in the North Boundary Vicinity of Rocky Mountain Arsenal to define the arsenal's subsurface hydrogeology. Water table measurements and permeability estimates have been generated to refine flow direction and quantify ground water movement of the alluvial aquifer as it flows across the North Boundary. This document presents a compilation of data assessments based upon the aforementioned survey results on expected fluoride contaminant loading with the proposed expanded North Boundary control system. As a result of these assessments, it has been determined that there is a good possibility that fluoride levels within the expanded treatment subsystem will be naturally below the state of Colorado limit, this may negate the need to add a costly fluoride removal module to the proposed granular carbon organic removal process. -BKA
