Waste Site Cleanup & Reuse in New England
Status & Cleanup Approach
An approximately seven year enforcement effort culminated in a 2008 legal agreement between the responsible parties, EPA, DOJ, and the State for cleanup of the site by a group of the responsible parties, clearing the way for the cleanup plan to get underway.
Additional sampling and tests were conducted on-site in 2008 to better inform the cleanup design. These pre-design investigations will conclude in 2009, the cleanup design is scheduled to be completed in 2010, and the cleanup is scheduled to start in 2011.
The Beede Waste Oil Superfund site cleanup plan involves:
- Groundwater extraction and treatment;
- Excavation and off-site disposal of approximately 1,000 cubic yards of contaminated sediment;
- Excavation and off-site disposal of approximately 75,000 cubic yards of contaminated soil at depths between 0 and 10 feet; and,
- In place treatment of approximately 70,000 cubic yards of contaminated soil at depths greater than 10 feet.
