Abstract:

This decision document has been prepared to support a no further action decision at Study Area 58 - Buildings 2648 and 2650 Fuel Oil Spills SA 58 at Fort Devens, Massachusetts. The report was prepared as part of the U.S. Department of Defense DOD Base Realignment and Closure BRAC program to assess the nature and extent of contamination associated with site operations at Fort Devens. In conjunction with the Armys Installation Restoration Program IRP, Fort Devens and the U.S. Army Environmental Center USAEC formerly the U.S. Army Toxic and Hazardous Materials Agency initiated a Master Environmental Plan MEP in 1988. The MEP consists of assessments of the environmental status of SAS, specifies necessary investigations, and provides recommendations for response actions with the objective of identifying priorities for environmental restoration at Fort Devens. SA 58 was identified in the MEP as a potential source of contamination. On December 21, 1989, Fort Devens was placed on the National Priorities List under the Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation and Liability Act CERCLA as amended by the Superfund Amendments and Reauthorization Act.
