Abstract : To properly evaluate the extent of the groundwater contamination problem at RMA, it is necessary not only to identify the contaminants, but also their possible sources. The principal justification for monitoring water quality, both from above and below the ground surface, at the South Boundary of the Arsenal is to determine the quality of this water before it becomes part of the RMA flow system. The water was analyzed for Cl, SO4, NO3, Fl, Na, Ca, DIMP, and DCPD. The sampling points are part of the 360 degree water monitoring program.-BKA
