Dear Ms. Donahue:

This letter is to inform you of the placement of the above referenced RAM Status report, dated 16 November 2001, in five public repositories in accordance with the Public Involvement Plan (PIP) prepared for this site (RTN 3-0277). This RAM Status Report was prepared in accordance with 310 CMR 40.0444. As this is a Status Report summarizing the results of ongoing bioremediation (BioRAM) activities at the W. R. Grace Site, a public comment draft of this report has not been prepared. The BioRAM is being implemented in accordance with the Enhanced In-Situ Bioremediation Release Abatement Measure (RAM) Plan. dated 18 July 2001. Comments on this plan were previously received and incorporated in to the final plan.

This letter is also to inform you of the placement of the above referenced Tier 1 Permit Extension Application, dated 16 November 2001, in five public repositories in accordance with the Public Involvement Plan (PIP) prepared for this site (RTN 3-0277).

By this letter we also are confirming that the following procedures will be followed by the Department in their review of this Permit Application and notifying the community of these 5 procedures. As noted in the legal notice published in the Cambridge Chronicle (14 November 2001), anyone interested in reviewing the Permit Extension application should notify DEP by writing to DEP, Bureau of Waste Site Cleanup, Permit Section at Northeast Regional Office, 205A Lowell Street, Wilmington, MA 01887, by 6 December 2001. The DEP will conduct an Administrative Completeness Review of the Application and will issue a letter indicating whether or not the application is considered complete. Once the application is deemed complete, the DEP will conduct a public comment period of twenty (20) days, which shall run concurrently with the DEP's Initial Technical Review of the application. Anyone who fails to notify the DEP in writing of his/her interest in commenting on the application by the above date may be deemed to have waived his/her rights, if any, to appeal DEP's permit decision or to intervene in an adjudicatory proceeding with respect to this application, pursuant to 310 CMR 40.0770(2).

Sincerely yours,
HALEY & ALDRICH
