Mass. National Guard settles with EPA BY MICHAEL P. TREMOGLIE Legal Newsline September 13, 2012BOSTON - The Massachusetts National Guard and the Environmental Protection Agency have resolved allegations of violations of operations and maintenance requirements for three firing ranges at Camp Edwards, Mass., Military Reservation.
Camp Edwards is a 22,000-acre property that has been used for military training activities since 1935. The base is located over an aquifer that is the sole source of drinking water for residents of Cape Cod, said the EPA, which announced the settlement Sept. 6.
The Army and Air Force have environmental cleanup programs for the soil and groundwater contamination that have resulted from activities on site. The U.S. Air Force is addressing contamination from the Otis Air Force Base primarily in the southern portion of MMR under the Federal Superfund Program. The U.S. Army is addressing contamination at Camp Edwards in the northern portion of MMR as required by EPA under the authority of the Safe Drinking Water Act.
