Mass. to receive $73M in Anadarko settlement

Posted 4/14/14

BOSTON – Attorney General Martha Coakley announced last week that the state will receive $73 million from a $5.15 billion nationwide settlement with Anadarko Petroleum Corp. and its affiliate Kerr-McGee. The settlement is considered the largest national environmental bankruptcy settlement in history.

Massachusetts will receive more than $73 million for a contaminated site in Hanover, known as the National Fireworks Site,” that is being cleaned up under the state’s Superfund Law. The site is a nearly 300-acre former munitions manufacturing, testing and disposal facility. As a result of the munitions operations that occurred there over several decades, starting during World War I, soils, sediments and water bodies in the vicinity are contaminated with high levels of mercury, lead and other heavy metals that have contaminated the fish and other natural resources, including in the adjacent Factory Pond and Indian Head River, which is a tributary of the North River. •
