The Blackburn & Union Privileges site is located in a primarily residential area in Walpole, Massachusetts. Industrial activities on site resulted in serious contamination in the form of inorganic chemicals, such as asbestos, lead, arsenic and nickel, as well as volatile organic compounds (VOCs) and semi-volatile organic compounds (SVOCs). Following immediate actions to protect human health and the environment, the site’s long-term cleanup is ongoing.
