Abstract : This report is one of three reports that address technologies and remedial action alternatives that may be applied to the U.S. Army Materials Technology Laboratory (Mm) in Watertown, Massachusetts. This report discusses indoor surfaces and containers, a second report discusses outdoor areas. The third report discusses surface water and sediments. A variety of remedial technologies were identified, and several of them were evaluated in detail. The evaluation was performed in accordance with the Massachusetts Contingency Plan (310 CMR 40). The selected remedial alternative is a combination of dismantling components that cannot be easily cleaned (such as lab hoods) and decontamination by means such as vacuuming, washing, and grit blasting. Part of this report was the development of cleanup goals for wipe samples of interior surfaces. (MM)
