The Airport will hold a public meeting on July 29, 2019, at 6:00 PM in the Barnstable Municipal Airport Terminal, First Floor Conference Room, to present its Draft Public Involvement Plan (PIP), describing ongoing activities related to evaluating sources of contamination associated with perfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) and 1,4-dioxane. Free parking is available in the main Airport parking lot with your ticket validated at the meeting.
Site assessment activities at the Airport are regulated by the Massachusetts Department of Environmental Protection under the Massachusetts Contingency Plan (310 CMR 40). These regulations include provisions for local residents to request, via a petition, a PIP to learn more about the investigations and ask questions about the ongoing work. In response to a citizen petition requesting the PIP, the Airport has developed a draft Plan that is now available at https://airport.town.barnstable.ma.us/about/documents.aspx for review.
Presentations at the meeting will include:
