ROCHESTER (AP) — The Environmental Protection Agency is starting a review of cleanup at three Superfund sites in New Hampshire.
The Coakley Landfill site in North Hampton was used by several municipalities. The EPA says groundwater contamination at the 27-acre site is dropping and will continue to be monitored until it reaches acceptable levels.
A 50-acre inactive landfill in Dover accepted domestic and industrial waste until it closed in 1980. The site's long-term cleanup and monitoring are ongoing.
The Savage Municipal Water Supply site, covering about 235 acres with a well and underlying aquifer, is near Milford. The wells were found to be contaminated and closed in 1983. After that, the EPA provided bottled water to 75 residents, and later connected them to the municipal water supply. Groundwater monitoring is ongoing.
