The Site is located at 430 Boston Post Road in Wayland, Massachusetts, and encompasses 83 acres, including 32 acres of wetlands and 41 acres of undeveloped grass and woodlands. It is adjacent to the Sudbury River, contiguous with the Great Meadows National Wildlife Refuge, bounded by Route 27 to the east and Route 20 to the south. The Site is located approximately one-half mile south of the Baldwin Pond supply wells within the Zone II Aquifer Protection District. The Site was formerly operated as a research and design facility by Raytheon Company and is presently a vacant office park.
Extensive investigative activities have been conducted at the Site since 1995. Results of these efforts are presented in a series of reports, which indicated environmental impacts to soil, groundwater and wetlands. These impacts do not currently pose a human health or public safety risk. Through continued, diligent assessment and remediation activities, Raytheon continues to demonstrate its commitment to the remediation of the Site and the protection of natural resources.
