Abstract : The proposed action is the construction and operation of a pilot system for contaminated ground water containment at Rocky Mountain Arsenal, CO. This system consists of a ground water collection subsystem, a water purification subsystem and a ground water recharge subsystem. The proposed pilot operations will supply data for the development of a full scale containment system which will be initiated in the fall of 1977 and will be contained until start of proposed full-scale operations in the fall of 1979. This EIS is applicable to the piloting of a system to accomplish the first objective of the IR program; that is, containment and treatment of contaminants migrating across the boundary of RMA. After completion of this pilot work, the system will be expanded to completely meet the objective. This system expansion will be addressed in a supplement to this statement. -BKA
