EPA Superfund Program: BEEDE WASTE OIL, PLAISTOW, NH

Superfund Site Profile

www.epa.gov/superfund/beede
 
The 41-acre Beede Waste Oil site is located in Plaistow, New Hampshire. A waste oil storage and recycling facility operated on site from the 1920s to 1994. Kelley Brook, a tributary of the Little River, flows along the north and northeast edges of the site. It is contaminated primarily with waste oil. The oil seeped into the ground from a variety of sources, including a former unlined lagoon, underground storage tanks, and aboveground storage tanks across the site property. Following construction of the site’s remedy, groundwater treatment and operation and maintenance activities are ongoing.
