The Tinkham Garage site encompasses 375 acres of residential and undeveloped land in Londonderry, NH. Between 1978 and 1979, waste disposal activities behind Tinkham garage included the direct surface dumping of liquids and sludge from tank truck washings. In April 1978 citizen complaints of foram and odors in a small unnamed brook resulted in a site cleanup and the excavation of a diversion trench to direct surface run-off. The RI, completed in January 1986, documented contamination from volatile and extractable organic compounds associated with ground water in overburden and bedrock aquifers, surface water and in soil. The primary contaminants of concern include: VOCs, organic sludges and metals.
