The installation restoration program, the military version of Superfund, helped fast track the cleanup contracts for four military hazwaste sites located at Hanscom Air Field, Bedford, Mass. The sites had been used by the Air Force for disposal of solid waste, spent fuels and other combustible liquids. Within three years of the initial feasibility study, four remedial action plans were prepared and three remedial action plan contracts were awarded.
