Army plans to end Devens cleanup in 2005

DEVENS -- Base Realignment and Closure Coordinator Ben Goff told members
of the Devens Restoration Advisory Board that all environmental cleanup
projects on the former Army base "need to be done by the end of fiscal
year 2005."

Goff's office at Devens works with the Environmental Protection Agency,
state Department of Environmental Protection and the U.S. Army to
oversee cleanup of all contamination sites on Devens.

"The BRAC cycle is to end in 2005," Goff told the RAB. "An exit strategy
leading to this must be put together."

Land that had been part of the former Sudbury Annex and that of the
Hingham Annex have already been transferred. "Now we plan to get Devens
done," he said.

"Findings of suitability" for transfer are being pursued for six
separate small areas. And those specific areas of contamination that
have "records of decision" will be monitored for years to come by the
Army Corps of Engineers.
