Cleanup project begins at Natick Labs
NATICK, Mass. -- A project to remove slightly contaminated earth and a water intake structure at the U.S. Army Soldier Systems Center (Natick) is scheduled to begin April 5.
The project was approved by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, Massachusetts Department of U.S. Environmental Protection and Town of Natick as part of the installation's cleanup as a Superfund site.
A contractor with the Army Corps of Engineers will be operating heavy machinery that may be noisy, including a 70-ton crane, from 7 a.m.-6 p.m. Monday through Saturday.
The intake structure is located in Lake Cochituate next to shore and will take as many as four weeks to remove. Soil removal is expected to be completed by June 15.
Natick is part of the U.S. Army Soldier and Biological Chemical Command (SBCCOM). For more information about SBCCOM or the Soldier Systems Center (Natick), please visit our website at http://www.sbccom.army.mil.
