State will cover costs to clean up Difeo oil site in Derry
And the property can be cleaned up and turned into a park or sold if the town opts to, said Mike Fowler, public works director.
“In this particular instance, it’s a low-level contaminant; it’s not a solvent, it’s not a chemical that has to be dealt with,” Fowler said, adding that the low-level contamination doesn’t pose a threat to humans in its current position.
“In this particular case, what was discovered will be transferred off site and basically destroyed,” Fowler said.
“The state will pay for it; that’s my main concern,” Dimmock said.
Fowler said the fund has already been established as the Difeo site was approved a number of years ago by the state.
