Abstract : The U.S. Army Environmental Center directed ABB Environmental Services, Inc. (ABB-ES), under Contract No. DAAA15-91-D-0008, to conduct a Feasibility Study to evaluate alternatives to reduce potential human health and ecological risks associated with contaminated groundwater at the Shepley's Hill landfill Operable Unit at Fort Devens, Massachusetts. The Shepley's Hill landfill Operable Unit consists of the sanitary landfill incinerator, Area of Contamination (AOC) 4; sanitary landfill No. 1 or Shepley's Hill landfill, AOC 3; and the asbestos cell, AOC 18. Both AOC 4 and 18 are located within the bounds of the Shepley's Hill Landfill. landfill operations at Shepley's Hill landfill began at least as early as 1917 and stopped as of July 1, 1992. The landfill received household and military refuse, and during its last few years of use, operated using the modified trench method. From 1941 until the late 1940s ash from the sanitary landfill incinerator was buried in the landfill.
