The former landfill and Upton Fuel and Construction is owned by the Upton Development Group. Operating under a consent order by the State Department of Environmental Protection the UDG is completing the process to line and cap the landfill. A portion of the landfill site will be utilized by the G&U for their operations.
The former landfill currently owned by the Upton Development Group (U.D.G), is being properly capped at the expense of U.D.G. The capping is being regulated by the Department of Environmental Protection and is under the supervision of the licensed site professionals, Woodard and Curran, Environmental Consulting Engineers. The completion of the capping should take place in the summer of 2012, and DEP certification should follow within three to six months. This process known as capping will greatly improve the groundwater protection to our municipal wells from contaminants that occurred while the site was used as a landfill. The site will continue to be monitored even after completion of the capping. Future use of the site has yet to be determined. The Town will be required to contribute to this cleanup and capping upon completion of the remediation.
