EPA, in consultation with the Massachusetts Department of Environmental Protection (MassDEP) has completed its assessment and final cleanup decisions for the Former A Range, Former K Range and Gun and Mortar Positions located on the northern portion of the Massachusetts Military Reservation (MMR) on Cape Cod.
The results of the site investigations concluded that limited actions are necessary at Former A Range including land use controls and site monitoring. EPA determined that no further actions were necessary at the Former K and Gun and Mortar Positions.
The Army National Guard’s Impact Area Groundwater Study Program, under the oversight of EPA and MassDEP, investigated potential contamination related to former military training activities. These investigations included geophysical work to assess the presence of munitions, and sampling and analysis of soil and groundwater.
Site work was conducted under the authority of EPA’s Safe Drinking Water Act Administrative Orders, as well as in consideration of the cleanup standards of the Massachusetts Contingency Plan.
