SITE BACKGROUND

www.epa.gov/superfund/troymills

The 2-acre Troy Mills Landfill site is located in Troy, New Hampshire. It is part of a larger 270-acre property. From 1967 to 1978, Troy Mills, Inc., a local fabric manufacturer operated a drum disposal area on site for an estimated 6,000 to 10,000 drums of liquid wastes and sludge. Immediately north of the former drum disposal area is a separate, 8-acre solid waste landfill regulated by the New Hampshire Department of Environmental Services (NHDES), which was used until 2001 for the disposal of waste fabric scraps and other miscellaneous solid waste generated by manufacturing operations at the Troy Mills, Inc. complex. The solid waste landfill is not part of the Superfund site. Following the removal of drums, liquid waste, sludge and contaminated soil, groundwater monitoring is ongoing. No further response actions are planned.
