Army says plume may have reached Picture Lake in Bourne By Paul Gately BOURNE COURIER (MA) December 7, 2010BOURNE - Another groundwater contamination plume from the Massachusetts Military Reservation has been detected at the base boundary. The plume may have crossed beneath MacArthur Boulevard and reached Pocasset.
The U.S. Army Environmental Command's Impact Area Groundwater Study Program last week said an investigation in MMR's Demolition Area 1 is involved, and contamination may have reached the Picture Lake area.
The Army seeks permission to drill test borings along town-owned roads, specifically Albert, Sabbatt and Williams Avenues.
Town Administrator Thomas Guerino and Bourne Highway Surveyor Rickie Tellier inspected the areas Monday afternoon. Guerino said there are no drinking water concerns.
