Environmental report details contamination at former South Weymouth Naval Air Station

Water, land contamination remains in Weymouth

WEYMOUTH - A report commissioned by a citizens advocacy group concludes that some of the land and groundwater are still far from safe at the former South Weymouth Naval Air Station.
The former base, a Superfund site, has been undergoing years of cleanup.

“The concentrations of contaminants remaining in groundwater far exceed levels that would be safe for drinking water consumption,” the report states.

The citizens group, formed in 2009 with members from Rockland, Abington, Weymouth and Hingham, says the report defines in easy-to- read language some of the environmental problems.
