Abstract : Under contract with the United States Army Environmental Center (USAEC), Ecology and Environment, Inc. (E & E) conducted this Feasibility Study (FS) for two Areas of Contamination (AOCs) at Fort Devens, Massachusetts: AOC 32 and AOC 43A. These AOCs are in Functional Area II, the Main Post. This FS is intended to identify and establish cleanup objectives for contaminated media, to evaluate and refine a list of alternative technologies that are being considered to remediate the contaminated sites, and to analyze in detail a short list of feasible alternatives. E & E conducted a Remedial Investigation (RI) of AOCs 32 and 43A and collected samples of environmental media to characterize the sites and to support ecological and human health risk assessments. Future use of the AOCs in Functional Area II (the Main Post) is expected to be of an industrial nature, similar to the current use of the sites. These expected uses were considered when the risk assessments for Functional Area II were developed.
