Auburn to conduct testing at landfill
Also, borings will be performed at Eaton Hill Road Friday to obtain testing samples to determine if reports that the road was paved using hazardous materials are founded.
Select Board Chairman Russell Sullivan said that despite an inherent interest in what is buried at the site, he and his fellow selectmen will not attend the dig or boring.
Work on paving Eaton Hill Road was completed in 2007. Dross has been road agent since 2006.
He added that while he has no concern that (the town’s engineering firm, Stantec Consulting Services) might find something, and added that he would not speculate if anything is there.
Sullivan added that police have asked for help from the County Attorney’s Office in the investigation.
“If anything is found (at the old landfill), it will be removed and disposed of, and any internal investigation would be up to the board of selectmen,” Herman said.
According to town officials, before the dig can begin the site must be dewatered — moisture removed from the soil, which will start Friday and last through the weekend. Once the site is ready, the plan will be to dig until dumped material is found or soil is reached. Police officials previously said that the alleged dumping is believed to have been performed at roughly 16 feet beneath the surface.
