DOCUMENTS RELEASED FOR REVIEW: This fall the EPA is wrapping up a 14-year effort to charcterize the risk and select a remediation strategy for the Superfund (hazardous waste) site located at 2229 Main Street in Concord, Massachusetts (formerly NMI/Starmet). Site contaminants include depleted uranium, polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs), chlorinated solvents, and 1,4-dioxane. The EPA has released their proposed plan and will be soliciting public comments at a public hearing and in writing.
A Public Meeting on the Proposed Remedial Action Plan for the Nuclear Metals, Inc./Starmet Superfund Site will be held on Wednesday, November 12, 2014 - 6:30 PM at the Concord Town House, Hearing Room (22 Monument Square, Concord MA). The EPA will present its proposed plan and answer questions from the audience. Following this meeting, there will be a 30 day public comment period to submit written comments to the EPA on the Proposed Remedial Action Plan.
The Public Hearing on the Proposed Remedial Action Plan for Nuclear Metals, Inc./Starmet Superfund Site will be held on Wednesday, December 10, 2014 - 6:30 PM at the Concord Town House, Hearing Room (22 Monument Square, Concord MA). This is a formal hearing that is part of the EPA regulatory process. Following this meeting, the EPA will consider all of the comments it has received (in writing or at the public hearing) and make a decision on how the site will be remediated. The EPA will respond to all of the comments in its published Record of Decision.
The 2229 Main Street Oversight Committee strongly urges all Concord residents to attend the above referenced meeting/hearing and listen to the EPA's strategy for protecting the Town's health and water resources. It believes the best strategy to move this process along quickly, is as residents of the Town - to make your presence known by finding out ways that you can comment and contribute to this cleanup effort. Let the EPA know how you feel about this important issue.
