The nine-acre Kearsarge Metallurgical site is an abandoned foundry in the town of Conway, Carroll County, New Hampshire. The site is located within the 100-year floodplain of the Saco River. Pequawket Pond borders the site to the south. The site contains a drainage pipe with four open-bottomed catch basins, two waste piles, a septic tank and leach field, and forested wetlands. A hydrologic study in 1982 revealed contamination of ground water in the upper aquifer underlying the site, a potential drinking water source. The Record of Decision (ROD) addresses both source control and management of migration of the contaminated ground water plume. The primary contaminants of concern affecting the soil, debris, and ground water are VOCs including TCE; and metals including chromium.
