Finding the right solution for the Starmet Superfund site in Concord

This fall the EPA is wrapping up a 14-year effort to characterize the risk and select a remediation strategy for the hazardous waste site located at 2229 Main Street in Concord (formerly Nuclear Metals/Starmet) near the Assabet River. Site contaminants include depleted uranium, PCBs, chlorinated solvents, and 1,4-dioxane. The EPA has released their proposed plan and will be soliciting public comments at a public hearing and in writing.

Copies of the proposed plan are available at the EPA website.
