Abstract : The objective of the Rocky Mountain Arsenal (RMA) Supplemental Field Study (SFS) is to resolve the biomagnification factor (BMF) dispute issue that was raised by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) upon its review of the Draft Final Integrated Endangerment Assessment/Risk Characterization (IEA/RC) Report (EBASCO 1993a). The program involves two phases (SFS-Phase I and SFS-Phase II). SFS-Phase I will involve collecting and analyzing biota tissue samples from the RMA "area of dispute" (AOD), a specific area over which the ecological risk characterization in the August 1993 Draft Final IEA/RC is contested as defined by the RMA Council (see Section 2.4). Additional sampling of selected species will also be conducted in the part of the eagle exposure area that is in the Bald Eagle Management Area (BEMA) or April 1993 prairie dog towns, but outside the AOD. If SFS-Phase I work indicates that unacceptable risks to biota are likely, the supplemental study may proceed with Phase II to collect additional tissue and soil data to estimate field BMFs for selected species. jg p9
