Subject: [CPEO-MEF] Army proposes Camp Edwards (MA) cleanup plan
Army sets in motion plume cleanup

Cape Cod Times (MA)

CAMP EDWARDS - Army officials are seeking input from the public as they
choose the final plan for cleaning up a plume of explosives and
perchlorate at Camp Edwards.

The long-term cleanup system would be the first operated by the Army at
the base. An Air Force cleanup program has been maintaining long-term
systems since the 1990s.

The plume of explosives - including RDX, HMX, TNT and the explosive
additive perchlorate - trails from a natural kettle hole called
Demolition Area One. The site was used for destroying munitions and
National Guard training in the 1970s and 1980s.

The plume is located Northeast of the Otis rotary.
