Abstract : The South Adams County Water and Sanitation District's most productive shallow alluvial wells are contaminated with a number of volatile organic chemicals. In addition, previous and ongoing studies by various agencies have detected several nonvolatile organic contaminants clearly associated with Rocky Mountain Arsenal (RMA) operations in the northern portion of the existing District area and throughout the western half of the area north and west of RMA. This area is ultimately planned as an addition to the District's present service area. The District retained the services of James M. Montgomery, Consulting Engineers, Inc. (JMM) to evaluate treatment alternatives for removal of organics contaminants and softening. The objectives of the study are outlined in the District's request for proposals dated October 11, 1985. In general, the objectives are: To establish, through an analysis of cost and availability, potential sources of supply for the current and projected District water demands; Based on requirements of the Colorado Department of Health and the Environmental Protection Agency, develop treated water quality goals; Select the most feasible treatment for organic contaminant removal with consideration of cost, constructability and reliability in meeting treated water quality goals. jg p.1
