Abstract : In order to evaluate the potential for contaminated groundwater to flow beyond the northwest boundary of RMA, a series of borings were drilled and water samples were collected for analyses. The purpose of this drilling program was twofold; (1) one was to determine the subsurface geologic conditions that exist at the boundary, and (2) the other was to provide a preliminary insight as to the extent of the groundwater contamination problem at that boundary. Only the findings related to water quality are presented in this report. The findings related to the subsurface hydrogeological conditions will be presented as part of a later report dealing with the entire northwest quadrant. (MM)
