U.S. EPA Region 1 News Release October 4, 2010 Additional Cleanup Decision Finalized at Camp EdwardsBoston - EPA has signed a final decision document to address contamination near the "L Range" at the Massachusetts Military Reservation (MMR) on Cape Cod.
The decision addresses both the groundwater contamination and its source. The majority of the L Range groundwater contamination is located on the eastern portion of the base, abutting the Town of Sandwich boundary, and sampling and monitoring efforts have shown that it does not threaten public or private drinking water supplies.
Monitored natural attenuation, or natural reduction in the environment, with land-use controls will serve as the remedy for groundwater contaminated from former military training activities at the L Range. Land-use controls will ensure there is no future use of the contaminated water as long as groundwater contamination levels remain over the state action level.
