Merrimack Industrial Metals is a 5 acre site, designated as Lot 6-1 on Merrimack Tax Assessors Map 2B, and is the location of a former metals recycling facility that operated between 1963 and 1999 when Merrimack Industrial Metals (MIM) ceased operations. The site is located adjacent to Pennichuck Brook, a Class A Water Body and the main water supply source for the City of Nashua. The site also abuts and is located within the wellhead protection area for the Merrimack Village District (MVD) Municipal Supply Well #6 (Well#6).
A stockpiled soil pile was created during a cleanup attempt that occurred from October to December 1999, as part of negotiations for the sale of the property. The sale of the property never took place. The soil pile is located approximately 250 feet from Pennichuck Brook and 1200 feet from Well #6.
