New London, NH

New London, NH: (Jul-03-07) The New Hampshire Attorney General's Office brought charges against the town of New London, after about 100,000 gallons of raw sewage spilled into Lake Sunapee in April 2004. The spill at the George's Mills Pump Station was followed by another spill of about 2,500 gallons in September 2006. Both incidents were due to a variety of problems with the town's sewer system, which had been altered over the years without state approval. After three years of negotiation, the parties reached a negotiated settlement, settling on penalties and corrective steps, which according to New London Town Administrator Jessie Levine, would cost the town close to $500,000. Further, as part of the settlement, the town is also conducting a $60,000 inflow study designed to eliminate relatively clean rainwater, from connections such as sump pumps and cellar drains, from the wastewater flow.
