On May 19, 2014, EPA contractors will mobilize for construction work at the Sutton Brook Disposal Area Superfund Site in Tewksbury.
Planned work includes excavation and consolidation of contaminated soil and sediments which will be then be placed under a landfill cap. The construction work is expected to continue into 2016.
During the initial mobilization to the site, beginning on Monday May 19, office trailers and construction equipment will be delivered to the site along with loads of aggregate/gravel which will be used to provide a stable surface for the office trailers.
These deliveries (approximately 40 total) will take place during the weeks of May 19 and May 26 with the majority of the deliveries occurring during the week of May 19.
While construction is underway, all excavation and consolidation of contaminated soils and sediments will be confined to the site and no contaminated soil or sediment will be moved off site.
