CONCORD -- The estimated cost of removing more than 3,700 barrels of depleted uranium from Starmet Corp.'s Superfund site in West Concord has now increased by $3.1 million, according to state Department of Environmental Protection officials.

As a result, according to department spokesman Joseph Ferson, the DEP sent a June 13 letter to the Army asking it to pick up the revised tab of $8.3 million for removing those barrels, a step considered crucial to cleaning up the 46-acre property off Route 62.

The Army, which agreed in April 2004 to pay for removing and disposing of the barrels containing low levels of radioactive material, has 20 days to reply to the request for more money, Ferson said. The barrels are stored in Starmet buildings.
