EPA Seeks Public Input on Modified Training at Camp Edwards

JBCCBOURNE – The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is seeking public comment on a proposed agreement to allow the Massachusetts Army National Guard to train with a “Percussion Activated Neutralizer” at Camp Edwards in Joint Base Cape Cod.

The comment period, which runs through May 6, provides an opportunity for public input on the modification to the EPA’s 1997 Safe Drinking Water Act Administrative Order.

The authorization process is part of the EPA’s regulatory role at the Massachusetts Military Reservation to protect the sole source Cape Cod Aquifer.

The EPA said that they do not expect that the chemical makeup and use of the items, will present a threat to the aquifer, and is now seeking public input on the proposal.
