Abstract : Groundwater at Rocky Mountain Arsenal (RMA) has been found to contain varying amounts for organic contaminants. Several bench scale treatability studies have been conducted to identify treatment processes with a high potential for removing the organic contaminants. One such process involves the combined use of ultraviolet light (UV) and ozone . The UV/ozone process proved very successful in bench-scale studies on RMA ground-water. To further demonstrate the potential of the UV/ozone process, a 1,000 gpd ULTROX field unit will be acquired and setup at RMA. An eight week study will be conducted using the ULTROX unit to treat groundwater from wells at RMA. Data obtained in the study will be used to develop a design for a full size pilot plant along with estimated costs for the system. (MM)
