MILFORD – The town

welfare office is looking

for two to three residents

to volunteer on a committee

that will research

and evaluate agencies

that receive funding

through Milford’s social

services warrant article.

The goal of the committee

is to research the

most appropriate and deserving

agencies. We will

put together a funding

request questionnaire

to be distributed to local

agencies, and advertise

to all agencies regardless

of past funding or

approval. We will evaluate

each agency that has

submitted their credentials

and provide to the

town of Milford a list

of those agencies who

would receive funding

through the warrant.

Anyone interested in

this group, contact Susan

Drew, welfare director,

249-0672, sdrew@milford.

nh.gov, before Sept. 15.

The committee intends

to hold its first meeting

on Monday, Sept. 21.

Savage Well

MILFORD – A 30-day

formal public comment

period on the proposed

cleanup activities for the

Savage Municipal Well

Superfund site has been

extended from Sept. 3 until

Oct. 3. The proposed

Environmental Protection

Agency cleanup

plan includes reducing

contaminant concentrations

in groundwater

through chemical

treatment, establishing

a Technical Impracticability

Zone within which

drinking water standards

will not be achieved, and

monitoring and assessing

the natural attenuation

of contaminants in

groundwater outside of

the TI Zone, where drinking

water standards will

eventually be achieved.

The plan is available

for review on the EPA

website at: www.epa.gov/

superfundsites/savage.

A copy will be available

in the Savage Municipal

Water Supply Superfund

Site repository at the
