Cleaning a
Superfund Environmental Mess



The New Bedford Harbor Superfund site encompasses 18,000 acres of urban estuary stretching from the upper Acushnet River into Buzzards Bay. In 2009, EPA announced that $25-35 million in new Recovery Act funding would be used to accelerate the hazardous waste clean-up already underway at the site. The swift allocation of Recovery Act funds has helped spur new jobs and economic opportunities in Massachusetts and is accelerating the pace of the harbor cleanup that was scheduled to take almost four decades. The Recovery Act funding could more than triple the amount of PCB-contaminated sediment removed compared to recent years. The progress anticipated this year will significantly expedite the timetable to return a clean harbor back to the community. More than 100,000 people, individuals and families, live in the area and will directly benefit from the project acceleration. This project has created more than 80 jobs.
