Natick base cleanup meeting tonight

Posted by Martin Finucane March 15, 2007 12:27 PM


The U.S. Army Soldier Systems Center will hold a public hearing tonight to discuss a proposed environmental cleanup plan at the military installation.

The Army is working with the Environmental Protection Agency and Massachusetts Department of Environmental Protection to clean two warehouses where hazardous materials were stored in the past. The Army also is working to clean up an undeveloped lot previously used for a variety of purposes, including as a parking lot and helicopter landing pad.

The cleanups are the latest in the ongoing effort to clear potentially hazardous material from the 78-acre property, which was declared a Superfund site in 1994. Members of the public can ask questions about the cleanup plan at the public meeting and hearing, which begins at 7 p.m. at the Natick Police Station, 20 E. Central St.
