DEVENS -- The Army contractor working on remediation of arsenic-laden groundwater flowing from the Shepley Hill Landfill is developing a revised plan that focuses on deeper exploration in the Nonoacious Brook area and in Plow Shop Pond's Red Cove.

Marc Grant, program manager for AMEC, told the Restoration Advisory Board last week his firm is developing a two-phase approach that will better delineate the boundaries of an arsenic plume some 50 to 60 feet under West Main Street, Ayer, and fill in gaps in data for the pond.

Once the boundaries of the West Main Street plume are known, a permanent monitoring well will be drilled.
