The 6,550-acre Rocky Flats Plant (DOE) site is a federal facility, which serves as a nuclear weapons research development and production complex in Jefferson County, Colorado. Surrounding land use is primarily rural residential, although there are some industrial properties nearby. The site overlies an alluvial/colluvial aquifer, and a small wetlands area is present. Since 1951, onsite operations have included the manufacture of nuclear weapons components from plutonium, uranium, beryllium, and stainless steel. There are twelve sites, designated as solid waste management units, which comprise the 881 Hillside area. In 1987, EPA identified VOC-contaminated ground water in the 881 Hillside area. The Record of Decision (ROD) addresses management of migration and cleanup of ground water in the 881 Hillside area. The primary contaminants of concern affecting the ground water are VOCs including PCE and TCE; metals including chromium; and radioactive materials.
