NHDES MTBE Remediation Bureau launches funding activity with GeoInsight project

In 2014, the State of New Hampshire launched an historic funding initiative, earmarking millions of dollars for the investigation and cleanup of groundwater impacted by methyl-tertiary butyl ether (MTBE). The NHDES chose the Four Corner Store in Richmond, NH as one of the initial MTBE sites deserving of targeted funding. This project, which was highlighted in a recent NHDES newsletter, included the removal of the store’s existing 12,000-gallon gasoline underground storage tank and the excavation of 965 tons of petroleum-impacted soil.
