Subject: [CPEO-IRF] Groton Federal Facilities Agreement
[Most federal facilities on the National Priorities List have federal
facilities agreements. They govern the cleanup decision-making process
and usually provide a schedule for deliverable documents, but they do
not define the remedies or the level of response. I don't know what is
unique about the Groton federal facilities agreement. - LS]

AG says 1994 agreement requires feds to pay for base cleanup

Associated Press/Long Island Newsday
June 14, 2005

HARTFORD, Conn. -- Nine years ago, Connecticut hammered out an agreement
with the federal government requiring the Department of Defense to clean
up all the contamination on the U.S. Navy Submarine Base in Groton,
Connecticut's attorney general said Tuesday. 

That "federal facilities agreement," which is unique to the sub base,
means DOD "can't leave it, or sell it or contain it; they have to clean
it," Attorney General Richard Blumenthal told The Associated Press. 

Blumenthal is questioning whether the Pentagon accounted for the
agreement last month when it recommended closing the base.
