Subject: [CPEO-MEF] Starmet uranium cleanup
Superfund cleanup set for two sites

Field work is scheduled to begin next month at two of the region's most
contaminated sites, Starmet Corp. in West Concord and the former Rocco's
Landfill in Tewksbury. Both properties were placed on the US
Environmental Protection Agency's Superfund list in June 2001.

The EPA recently approved work plans featuring extensive water and soil
samplings at the two sites. Once a determination of the extent of
contamination has been made sometime next year, a process to look into
possible health risks can begin, officials said.

The federal agency and the state Department of Environmental Protection
will hold a public information meeting Tuesday on the Starmet field
work, which is expected to begin Oct. 4. The meeting will start at 7
p.m. in the main hearing room of the Concord Town House, 22 Monument Square.
