The Gibson Road hazardous waste dump site is located in the City of Nashua, New Hampshire. The 6 acre site has been used as a sand borrow pit for an undetermined number of years. Some time during the late 1960's the operator of the pit began an unapproved and illegal waste disposal operation. Household refuse, demolition materials, chemical sludges, and approximately 800,000 gallons of hazardous liquid chemicals were dumped at the site. The ground water, air and to a lesser extent surface water have been contaminated. The selected cost-effective remedial action includes the installation of a slurry wall around a 20-acre area, an impervious cap, and treatment of the ground water contained within the slurry wall. The present worth cost for the life of the project is estimated to be $8,660,000.
