to the Aberjona Study Coalition, Inc.
ASC was formed in 2002 and consists of six Environmental Groups: Woburn Neighborhood Association, Mystic River Watershed Association, Concerned Citizens Network, Friends of the Upper Mystic Lake, Medford Boat Club and Woburn Residents Environmental Network. We represent over 225,000 residents that border the Aberjona River.
The EPA awarded a double Technical Assistance Grant ($100,000) to ASC on the Aberjona River combined study of the Industri-Plex and Woburn G & H Wells sites.
ASC has hired Cambridge Environmental, Inc. to interpret EPA reports on the Aberjona River. The primary goal of ASC is to ensure that the future assessment and remediation of two Woburn Superfund sites, the Industri-Plex and Woburn G & H Wells sites, are completed by the responsible parties with effective well-informed input from the affected residents, businesses, and community organizations so as to improve the water quality of the Aberjona River and the Mystic River to fishable and swimable standards as established by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and the Massachusetts Department of Environmental Protection, under the Clean Water Act.
ASC Hires Cambridge Environmental
The process of a Technical Advisor selection included the development of a detailed Request for Proposal and Scope of Work document. Nine firms responded and submitted proposals for the group's evaluation. In August, ASC evaluated the firms following the EPA"s procurement guidelines. ASC determined that Cambridge Environmental, Inc. could best represent the public in the interpretation of EPA's highly technical documentation. It is expected that this consulting firm will disseminate and assimilate all study material and translate it back to the communities. It is also expected that Cambridge Environmental will repor their findings at ASC public meetings, which will be posted. ALl are welcomed to attend.
