Abstract : Investigations of Study Area 59 (Bridge 526) at Fort Devens, Massachusetts, have resulted in the decision that no further studies or remediation are required at this site. Study Area 59 was identified in the Federal Facilities Agreement between the U. S. Environmental Protection Agency and the U.S. Department of Defense as a potential site of contamination. Fort Devens was placed on the National Priorities List under the Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation and Liability Act as amended by the Superfund Amendments and Reauthorization Act on December, 21, 1989. In addition, under Public Law 101-510, the Defense Base Realignment and Closure Act of 1990, Fort Devens was selected for cessation of operations and closure. In accordance with these acts and to support the overall mission of environmental restoration and base closure, numerous studies have been conducted that address study areas at Fort Devens, including a Master Environmental Plan (Argonne National Laboratory, 1992), an Enhanced Preliminary Assessment (Weston, 1992), and Site Investigation Reports (ABB, 1992 and Arthur D. Little, 1993a).
