As millions of dollars is being directed toward the removal of PCB's from New Bedford Harbor, the E-P-A says it will conduct a feasibility study to determine whether putting contaminated sediment in so-called cad cells along the shoreline is the best way to go.  The agency has been under pressure from community groups and politicians to look for alternative methods of disposal. E-P-A spokesman Jim Murphy says the agency will keep an open mind...

Murphy says the public will have a chance to comment on any alternative plans that emerge.  The agency also announced it would post all comments about the proposed settlement between A-V-X Corporation and the E-P-A on the E-P-A/ New Bedford website starting December 28.  Murphy says a few dozen comments were received.
