Public Meeting Notice
DES and EPA will Present Findings on Mottolo Superfund Site

Raymond, NH – The New Hampshire Department of Environmental Services (DES) and U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) will host a public meeting to present the findings of extensive investigative activities conducted in 2009 and early 2010 at the Mottolo Superfund site. The meeting will be held on Wednesday, March 24 from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. at the Raymond High School Cafeteria, Raymond.

GZA GeoEnvironmental, an environmental consultant to DES, has prepared a Draft 2009 Data Report, which provides a summary, analysis, interpretation, and findings of the extensive residential sampling programs, on-site subsurface investigation, and overburden and deep bedrock groundwater sampling events that occurred at and in the vicinity of the site in 2009 and early 2010. In general, the report findings conclude that the combined presence of the site contaminant trichloroethylene (TCE) and associated site-related chemistry impacts on groundwater has likely mobilized arsenic, resulting in concentrations above background levels in the area adjacent to the western boundary of the Mottolo Site. A more detailed explanation of the key findings of the report, areas impacted, next steps and schedule will be presented at the meeting. There will be an opportunity for questions and discussion following the presentation.

What: Public Information Meeting on the Mottolo Superfund Site
When: Wednesday, March 24; 7 p.m. to 9 p.m.
