Stage of Clean-up: Construction Completed
Conditions at listing (September 1983): The South Municipal Water Supply Well in Peterborough, New Hampshire, serves about 4,600 people. Routine sampling of the water supply by the State detected VOLATILE ORGANIC COMPOUNDS, including 1,1,1-TRICHLOROETHANE, CARBON TETRACHLORIDE, 1,1-DICHLOROETHANE, and TRICHLOROETHYLENE. Similar compounds were detected in adjacent surface waters. Further investigation is needed to identify the source(s) and determine the extent of contaminant migration. Status (June 1984): The State is planning to conduct a limited hydrogeologic investigation at the site during the summer of l984.
