Abstract : (1) The alternatives assessed within this scope of work for Rocky Mountain Arsenal for disposal of hazardous wastes from Basin F are either off-site disposal, to an approved hazardous waste landfill facility, or disposal on-site at the Arsenal. (2) The off-site facilities that might be available to RMA are either the existing Lowry Landfill site or the proposed Last Chance Site. (3) There are two principle issues related to off-site disposal: (1) the availability of either the Lowry Landfill or Last Chance Site to accept RMA wastes; and (2) the cost of disposal at either of these sites. Because of some technical and political concerns associated with the Lowry Landfill, it is unlikely that it would be available for RMA's disposal requirements.
