COAKLEY LANDFILL

1.4-Dioxane Contamination Found in Second Greenland Well

The Coakley Landfill Group (CLG) will be required to provide alternate water to the Breakfast Hill Golf Club clubhouse after finding an elevated level of 1.4-dioxane, which is believed to be migrating from the the Coakley landfill in Greenland and North Hampton.

It's good news that the state ordered the CLG to provide water to the clubhouse according to State Representative Renny Cushing of Hampton.

State Representative Mindi Messmer of Rye said that the state's Pediatric Cancer Commission has recommended "action should be taken in the Legislature to compel the state to act in stopping the flow of toxins off site."
