CONCORD — Water wells near another N.H. landfill have tested positive for elevated concentrations of perfluorooctaonoic acid (PFOA) and perfluorooctane sulfonate (PFOS), the New Hampshire Department of Environmental Services (NHDES) reported Friday.
The water testing took place near the old L.L.&S. Construction and Demolition Debris Landfill in Salem.
NHDES suspects that certain chemical agents used in fighting fires that took place at the landfill containing PFOA and PFOS are to blame for the contamination.
The site now operates as L.L.&S. Lowell Road Wood Processing Facility.
