Superfund Site: FORT DEVENS-SUDBURY TRAINING ANNEX
Superfund Site Profile
Institutional controls are required for this site.
This site requires ICs because a decision document, such as a Record of Decision, has documented some level of contamination and/or remedy component at the site that would restrict use of the site. These ICs are required to help ensure the site is used in an appropriate way and that activities at the site do not damage the cleanup components. These ICs will remain in place for as long as the contamination and/or cleanup components stay on site.
The former Ft. Devens Sudbury Training Annex site is located in the towns of Hudson, Stowe, Maynard, and Sudbury in eastern Massachusetts. The area was an active facility until it closed under the Defense Base Realignment and Closure Act of 1995. Wastes generated by the facility while it was operating contaminated soil and groundwater. After cleanup, EPA took the site off the Superfund program’s National Priorities List (NPL) in 2002. Ownership of most of the site property transferred to the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service as the Assabet River National Wildlife Refuge in 2005.
