Abstract : The Program Manager for the Rocky Mountain Arsenal (PMRMA) will conduct a technical program addressing surface-water conditions on Rocky Mountain Arsenal (RMA). The U.S. Geological Survey will perform the surface-water monitoring program (SWMP) and will develop individual aspects of the program in a logical progression. The principal goals of the surface-water program are designed to: (1) Support the needs of clean-up activities at RMA. (2) Monitor surface-water flow, storage, and quality on and around RMA. (3) Provide timely and accurate data that will be appropriate to address issues such as water balance, surface- and ground-water interaction, and water management scenarios at RMA. This core of basic data will remain a constant foundation for the program; however, the program will also be responsive to specific needs of other on-going programs such as remedial investigations, feasibility studies, and the design analysis of alternatives. The purpose of this task plan is to present and define the SWMP for fiscal year 1995 (FY95). The principal components of the SWMP are the surface-water network and operational methodologies used within the network. Additional components of the SWMP discussed in this task plan are reports produced by the program, quality-assurance and quality-control procedures for USGS field methods and for analytical support provided by the Laboratory Support Division of the Program Manager's Office, data processing and management, and health and safety procedures used by USGS at RMA.
