Abstract:  The Massachusetts Military Reservation (MMR) on Cape Cod Massachusetts lies within the boundaries of the towns of Bourne, Mashpee, Sandwich, and Falmouth. This site is listed on the National Priorities List (NPL) as Otis Air National Guard/Camp Edwards in Falmouth, Massachusetts. This record of Decision (ROD) addresses the area of contamination (AOC) Fuel Spill-2 (FS-2), which consists of 5.5 acres of land. The CERCLIS number is MA2570024487. The MMR occupies approximately 22,000 acres on Cape Cod and provides facilities for several operating command units. Past military training and maneuvers, military aircraft operations, and maintenance and support activities have resulted in releases of hazardous materials at MMR.
 
Remedy:  This ROD presents the selected No Further Action decision for the soil and groundwater at the FS-2 site at MMR. The U.S. Department of Defense (DOD) is the lead agency for CERCLA remedial actions at MMR. The EPA and DOD are parties to the FFA for the MMR, and they concur with the state of Massachusetts EPA that the no further action decision for FS-2 is appropriate. Soils containing contamination that posed unacceptable human health risks were removed from the site in 1996 and treated at the thermal treatment plant at FTA-1. Petroleum-related semivolatile organic compounds (SVOCs) and metals were detected in soil and groundwater samples, however, these compounds occur at concentrations below applicable action levels. Therefore, no further action is appropriate.
