EPA Superfund Program: AUBURN ROAD LANDFILL, LONDONDERRY, NH

Superfund Site Profile

 
The Auburn Road Landfill site is located in Londonderry, New Hampshire. The 200-acre area includes three separate disposal areas – the former Londonderry Town Dump, which operated during the 1960s and was used for the disposal of over 1,000 drums of chemical waste; a tire disposal area, where tires and demolition debris and several hundred drums of chemical waste were dumped; and a solid waste landfill, the largest disposal area, which was active until the state ordered the entire landfill closed in 1980 after hazardous wastes were identified in soil, and toxic organic substances were found in surface water and groundwater. After construction of the site’s remedy, operation and maintenance activities and monitoring are ongoing.

TOPICS IN FOCUS

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.
