Middlesex Municipal Landfill
Middlesex Landfill is a DOE site for 1984 and 1986 so workers are eligible to file both Part B and Part E claims.
From 1948 to 1960, the Middlesex Sampling Plant conducted thorium and uranium activities and disposed of the wastes at the Middlesex Municipal Landfill.
Although this site was designated as part of the Formerly Utilized Site Remediation Action Program (FUSRAP) in 1980, the only years in which remediation work took place were 1984 and 1986. This work was performed under the Bechtel National Inc. umbrella site remediation contract and by local subcontractors.
During the period of residual contamination, as designated by the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health and as noted in the dates above, employees of subsequent owners and operators of this facility are also covered under the Energy Employees Occupational Illness Compensation Program Act.
