About this Project

FST conducted a Massachusetts Contingency Plan (MCP) Phase II through Phase IV assessment, remedial and site closure activities at the location of a former tannery. All work was performed in accordance with the deadlines imposed under an Administrative Consent Order (ACO). The project involved coordinating MCP cleanup operations in conjunction with site work conducted under an EPA Brownfields Grant to the City of Taunton. A detailed plan for the assessment of the site, which was developed and incorporated into the EPA Brownfield work for the City of Taunton. The assessment included an evaluation of site soil, groundwater, surface water and sediment over the entire 15-acre site and a detailed investigation of a portion of the site, which was previously used as a landfill for tannery wastes. On the basis of the assessment plan, remedial closure options were developed. A plan for regulatory closure was implemented, resulting in an Activity Use Limitation for the tannery landfill portion of the site. FST designed and oversaw the closure of the site via a RCRA equivalent cap over the contaminated wastes. This project was completed with a Response Action Outcome.
