Is it safe to buy a house near RMA?
Yes. TCHD and many people considered it safe to purchase houses near RMA since all new subdivisions have major utility supplied water. Older houses may have wells. Most if not all new wells are installed in the Arapahoe Formation which is deep and safe. TCHD is not aware of any new houses being built with water being supplied from shallow alluvial groundwater sources.
