The Army Corps of Engineers continues cleanup at contaminated Shpack
industrial site in Norton
By Marc Larocque Taunton Daily Gazette (MA) March 2, 2012Norton - The Army Corps of Engineers have finished their job excavating the former Shpack landfill to remove waste that polluted the soil there, but there is still some work to be done to remove chemical contamination from the site, according to the Environmental Protection Agency.
Through October 2011, the Army Corps of Engineers excavated 57,687 cubic yards of contaminated waste from the Shpack site and shipped away 50,555 cubic yards of radiologically impacted waste. The Corps first became involved in 2002, when legislation was passed directing it to clean up the radioactive wastes on the site, which was a landfill that accepted industrial and domestic waste from 1946 to 1965.
