Jones Environmental Services, Inc. (formerly Jet Line Services; formerly Geochem) is a one to two acre commercial hazardous waste treatment and storage facility. The facility treated and stored a variety of hazardous wastes and is currently being used as a transfer station. Hazardous waste cleanup activities have been proceeding under the Massachusetts Department of Environmental Protection's (MassDEP) Massachusetts Contingency Plan (MCP). The facility is also a participant in EPA's Voluntary corrective Action Program.

In April 2006, the facility submitted final reports associated with it's MCP hazarous waste cleanup activities (Class A-3 RAO). EPA subsequently proposed a "Completion With Controls" final remedy determination for the facility, meaning in this case that Corrective Action was complete except for an Activity and Use Limitation (AUL). EPA sought public comment during a forty-five (45) day public comment period beginning April 21, 2006. EPA received no comments that required modification of the proposal. EPA's proposal and supporting documents are provided below for convenience.

EPA's remedy proposal was simultaneously coordinated with the MassDEP's determination to issue a Hazardous Waste Operating Permit to the facility. EPA's determination became effective on August 9, 2006 which corresponds to the date MassDEP issued the facility a revised "Part B" operating permit. The facility will continue to operate as a licensed hazardous waste TSD facility (i.e., treatment, storage and/or disposal).
