Mohawk Tannery EPA Cleanup Status
While this is not a Democratic issue, it is a city issue that impacts everyone.
The Mohawk Tannery on Fairmont St in Nashua operated until 1984, tanning hides for leather. It is an EPA Superfund cleanup site contaminated by barium, arsenic and carcinogenic dioxin.
A local developer is interested in converting these 40 acres into multifunctional housing and commercial uses along the parkway.
The community concern has been around how the cleanup is being proposed. The EPA and the developer are proposing that the contaminated lagoons be capped. Many in the community believe that removing the contaminated soil is a far better option, but is also much more expensive.
No decisions have been made. If you would like to know more, use the link below.
