Rocky Mountain Arsenal

The Colorado Attorney General, John W. Suthers, announced yesterday that a settlement has been reached on a claim for natural resource damages at the Rocky Mountain Arsenal Superfund site. The suit was filed in 1983 against Shell Oil and the U.S. Army. The details are available in a press release from the AG’s office.

The Rocky Mountain Arsenal pages from the Hazardous Materials and Waster Management Division of the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment are a good resource for an overview of conditions at the arsenal. There is a short history, a description of environmental concerns and remediation process, and the final report from the Medical Monitoring Program.

We have several reports of interest at the Colorado State Publications Library:
