Abstract : ABB Environmental Services, Inc. (ABB-ES), prepared this Feasibility Study (FS) Report for Area of Contamination (AOC) 43G at Fort Devens, Massachusetts in accordance with the U.S. Army Environmental Center (USAEC) Contract DAAA15-91-D-0008, Delivery Order 005. On December 21, 1989, Fort Devens was placed on the National Priorities List (NPL) under the Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation, and Liability Act (CERCLA) as amended by the Supertund Amendments and Reauthorization Act (SARA). In addition, under Public Law 101-510, the Defense Base Realignment and Closure (BRAC) Act of 1990, Fort Devens was selected for cessation of operations and dosure. In accordance with these acts, numerous studies, including a Master Environmental Plan (Biang et al., 1992), Enhanced Preliminary Assessment, and Site Investigations (Sis) have been conducted which address potential areas of contamination referred to as Study Areas (SAs) at Fort Devens. A current total of 76 SAs have been identified and placed in 13 priority groups. These SAs are subject to a Federal Facility Agreement (FFA) (Interagency Agreement AG) between the U.S. Department of the Army and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (USEPA) for environmental investigations and remedial actions (USEPA, 1991a)
