The 92-acre Coakley Landfill site is in the towns of Greenland and North Hampton, Rockingham County, New Hampshire. The site includes a 27-acre landfill, and borders farmland, undeveloped woodlands, and wetlands to the north and west and commercial and residential properties to the east and south. In 1979, the State received complaints concerning leachate breakouts in the area and, by 1983 VOC-contamination had been identified in a domestic drinking water well. The Record of Decision (ROD) addresses source control and ground water contamination near the landfill. The selected remedial action for the site includes excavating and consolidating approximately 2,000 cubic yards of wetlands sediment and 30,000 cubic yards of solid waste and depositing the material into the landfill prior to capping; collecting and treating landfill gases using a thermal destruction process; ground water pumping and treatment using chemical precipitation for metals removal, air stripping for VOC removal, and biological treatment.
