Exxon Mobile Will Clean Up New Hampshire MTBE Leak
May 1, 2007
Exxon Mobile will pay over $2,000,000 for site cleanup
MTBE leaks in New Hampshire caused by Exxon Mobile will be cleaned up by Exxon Mobile. The State of New Hampshire and the Exxon Mobile representatives reached a settlement agreement earlier this week.
Exxon Mobile was reibursed by its private insurance company, but it took no part in paying for the cleanup needed to make soil and groundwater contaminant-free. The state of New Hampshire believed that it should be reimbursed for cleaning up someone else's mess.
Although the State of New Hampshire originally sought $2.9 million from Exxon Mobile, officials settled for an even $2,000,000 which will go a long way to "re-fill" the environmental remediation fund.
The report concluded that the town should no longer be considered a source of the contamination, and no additional testing is required.
