News Release U.S. EPA March 13, 2012 EPA Reaches Decision for Central Impact Area Cleanup at Camp Edwards(Boston, Mass. – March 13, 2012) - EPA, in consultation with the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, has decided upon a cleanup strategy for the Central Impact Area (CIA). The CIA was the largest single remaining area of unaddressed contamination on the Massachusetts Military Reservation (MMR) in the northern portion of Camp Edwards. The final Remedy Selection Plan outlines actions for both the groundwater contamination and the affiliated source areas in the soil.
A public comment period ran from July to August of 2011 after an initial public presentation was given on the proposed cleanup alternatives during an MMR Cleanup Team meeting on July 27, 2011. Comments received on the proposed cleanup were considered by EPA and are included in the CIA Decision Document.
The 330-acre Central Impact Area contained the majority of the targets used for munitions training within the larger 2200-acre Impact Area. The CIA is believed to be the primary source area for the RDX and perchlorate groundwater contamination in this area of MMR. Both chemicals are associated with the use and disposal of military munitions.
