Buzzards Bay Coalition Questions Cad-Cell Technology
The EPA’s plan to dredge pcb-contaminated sediment from New Bedford Harbor, and dispose of the material in so-called cad cells along the shoreline, is coming under fire from the Buzzards Bay Coalition. Coalition Director Mark Rasmussen tells WBSM News, his agency has done its own study, paid for by the E-P-A, using an atmospheric chemist from M-I-T.
Rasmussen says the Coalition is submitting the study to the EPA and asking them to take a second look at the cad cell technology. Ideally says Rasmussen, he’d rather see the sediment trucked out of New Bedford and disposed of at an environmentally appropriate landfill.
