Subject: [CPEO-MEF] VOCs: New England Sand and Gravel (MA) - former test site

A Waltham research company is linked with military testing gone awry that contaminated grounds of former New England Sand and Gravel site for more than two decades.

During the mid-1980s on a tract in the northeast part of town, Foster-Miller Inc. was a subcontractor charged with developing a substance that could quickly fix bombed-out runways, the U.S. Air Force said.

For at least the past decade, that land had been slated for a one-of-a-kind planned unit development, now known as Danforth Green, which called for 525 housing units to be built near the Wayland town line.

In 1986, Foster-Miller's task was to test the "mixing and dispensing equipment," according to the U.S. Air Force.
