WR Grace Superfund Site

In southeast Acton is located the W.R. Grace Superfund site; in 1978 it was discovered that toxins from the Grace site had contaminated two of Acton’s drinking water wells, which were then shut down. In 1983 it was declared a Superfund site, and remediation has been ongoing for much of the time since. Acton Citizens for Environmental Safety (ACES) was formed to watchdog the process and was the primary citizen vehicle, along with the Town, for monitoring and review of cleanup progress. For more about ACES, follow this link.
