Abstract : Field investigations conducted over the last several years in the area offpost of RMA have examined various media to evaluate the nature and extent of contamination that may have resulted from contaminant migration from Rocky Mountain Arsenal (RMA). Consumptive Use Assessments and Contamination Assessments conducted since 1984 have indicated that ground water was the primary pathway for contaminant migration to the offpost area. Thus, much of the Remedial Investigation (RI) efforts focused on evaluating ground-water pathways and the nature and extent of ground-water contamination. However, surface water, sediments, air, and biota were also examined to evaluate potential contamination in these media and the extent to which these media may be contaminant pathways from RMA to the Offpost Operable Unit
