SITE BACKGROUND

The Savage Municipal Water Supply Well site, covering about 235 acres, sits about five miles west of the center of Milford, New Hampshire. The site consists of a municipal well and the underlying aquifer. The wells were found to be contaminated and closed in 1983. After that, EPA provided bottled water to 75 residents affected by contaminated well water. EPA later connected residents to the municipal water supply. Following construction of the site’s long-term remedy, groundwater monitoring and operation and maintenance activities are ongoing.
