Abstract : Groundwater at Rocky Mountain Arsenal (RMA) has been found to contain traces of organic contaminants. Previous bench scale studies and a limited field-scale study conducted during FY 77 at RMA have proven the applicability of combined UV light and ozone oxidation in removing organic contaminants from the groundwater at RMA. The field study indicated that the treatment removal efficiency for organic contaminants is highly dependent on the operational parameters such as ozone mass flow, liquid flow, and UV light intensity. The field study was limited with respect to certain operational parameters that could not be easily controlled with the available UV/ozone reactor unit. These parameters include temperature, pH, pressure, and mixing. In order to expand the earlier studies and to provide support for further UV/ozone field studies at RMA*, a bench-scale Uv/ozone system has been designed, procured, and placed in operation. The bench studies will be conducted at the Waterways Experiment Station (WES) on various source waters. (jg)
