This project involved the identification, removal, sampling, and disposal of 28 55-gallon drums from the bottom of Morewood Lake, performed as an Immediate Response Action under the Massachusetts Contingency Plan. As part of the work, drums on the bottom of the lake were located and identified, placed into recovery bags, and hoisted up to a barge where they were recorded, inspected, opened, and sampled. The project included sampling of lake water and sediments, as well as a risk assessment of impact to the lake ecosystem and recreational users of the lake, and successfully achieved closure of the threat of release.
