Abstract : The Sewer Systems at RMA have been recognized as major contributors to contaminant transport. Complex combinations of exfiltration and contaminated ground water and surface water infiltration may have resulted in the transport of contaminants over large areas of the Arsenal. MKE has initiated a field investigations of the RMA Sewer Systems in order to: (1) Understand the evolution of the systems, (2) Assess their condition, (3) Make preliminary determinations of their role in contaminant transport. This report summarizes the results of the initial phase of work. The primary purpose of this first phase is to provide sufficient information to select candidate sites for Excavation, Observation, and Sampling. The scope of work includes: (1) Map compilation, (2) Initial field investigation. (AN)
