Institutional controls are required for this site.
 
This site requires ICs because a decision document, such as a Record of Decision, has documented some level of contamination and/or remedy component at the site that would restrict use of the site. These ICs are required to help ensure the site is used in an appropriate way and that activities at the site do not damage the cleanup components. These ICs will remain in place for as long as the contamination and/or cleanup components stay on site. The site contacts should be consulted if there are questions on the ICs for this site.

SITE BACKGROUND

The Coakley Landfill site is located in Rockingham County, New Hampshire. Several municipalities used part of the 92-acre area as a landfill. The landfill area encompasses 27 acres in the southern part of the site. Cleanup work has cleaned up contamination to acceptable levels at the source. Groundwater contamination is dropping and will continue to be monitored until it reaches acceptable levels.
