In an effort to reduce barriers to data, the BU SRP Research Translation Core has created a series of maps from existing public data. In addition to the map above, the Research Translation Core has also created maps of the:
The map at the top of this page shows the National Priorities List sites (NPL sites), commonly referred to as Superfund sites, in the state of Massachusetts. There are 31 current Superfund sites in Massachusetts, including the well-known Wells G and H in Woburn and the Otis Air National Guard Base on Cape Cod. In the map above, each Superfund site includes contaminant information that is linked to external resources. For example, if you click on the South Weymouth Naval Air Station site you will see that volatile organic compounds (VOCs) are listed as one of the contaminants. If you click on the volatile organic compounds link a new window will open that will list a number of resources you can use to learn more about VOCs.
This data was exported from a MassDEP file. For more information on the mapped data please visit the MassDEP maps page, and for more information on Superfund sites please visit the EPA Superfund website.
