Abstract : The Rocky Mountain Arsenal has received a Cease and Desist Order from the State of Colorado to prevent further migration of contaminated water across its North Boundary. Contaminants related to liquid wastes resulting from the past manufacture of chemical warfare agents and recent manufacture of herbicides, pesticides, and fungicides have reached the saturated zone and are being transported by ground water. Ground water flow is generally to the north and northwest toward the South Fork Platte River.-BKA
