"Major Cleanup To Begin at NH $50M Superfund Site"

"CONCORD, N.H. -- Cleanup at one of the state's major Superfund pollution sites is moving into high gear."

"The Beede Site in Plaistow was home for decades to the Beede Waste Oil disposal company, which accepted more than 28 million tons of soil contaminated with oil. The operators didn't recycle the waste as promised but let it seep into its 40-acre facility until the state ordered it closed in 1994.

The company's director was sentenced in 1996 to more than three years in prison, and the federal Environmental Protection Agency reached settlement agreements with more than 1,300 of the site's former customers to help underwrite the estimated $50 million in cleanup costs."
