Abstract: The Rocky Mountain Arsenal (RMA) occupies more than 17,000 acres near Denver, Colorado. During World War II, RMA manufactured weapons with resulting chemical and toxic waste products being produced. Additionally, the site was used by Shell Chemical Company to manufacture pesticides and herbicides. As a result of these activities, contaminants have migrated into the groundwater aquifer. U.S. Army Engineer Waterways Experiment Station performed a bench scale study to evaluate chemical oxidation processes for treatment of two RMA groundwaters. The bench scale study evaluated combinations of ultraviolet light (UV), UV with ozone, and hydrogen peroxide with ozone (peroxone) to determine the feasibility of using chemical oxidation processes to treat the groundwater. Peroxone treatment of the groundwater was recommended as the best treatment option based on degradation rates and cost. A peroxone pilot study was recommended to further evaluate this technology for RMA application.
