Remediation at Shepley's Hill focus of meeting

DEVENS -- Remediation of the old Shepley's Hill Landfill "superfund" site in Devens, where test wells detected high levels of arsenic, has been ongoing for some time and at no small cost, according to the United States Army, which is doing the work, with most goals reportedly met or in progress and a wrap-up plan in the works.

But entities involved in the project and/or its outcome- including the U.S. Army, The Federal Environmental Protection Agency the Massachusetts Department of Environmental Protection and the Town of Ayer - are not on the same page in terms of punch list items, the Army's pull-out plans or even the to-do list.

Basically, the groups are at odds about the scope of arsenic clean up and whether it's feasible to restore contaminated ground water to drinking water quality, a notion the Army apparently considers impractical and unnecessary.
