EPA Extends Comment Period for Woburn Scheme

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency has proposed a cleanup plan for the Wells G&H Superfund Site, Southwest Properties, Operable Unit (OU4).

“EPA has been asked to extend the comment period, and will do so. The comment period will now be a total of 62 days and be open until September 13, 2017,” the agency said in its release.

Some of those details include:

  • Excavation and offsite disposal of contaminated soil and NAPL, and capping of contaminated soil;

  • Containment and cleanup of groundwater contaminants;
  • Long term monitoring;
