NORTH HAMPTON, N.H. (AP) - Officials in North Hampton are asking the city of Portsmouth to open the meetings of a group responsible for the environmental mediation in and around a federal Superfund cleanup site.

The Portsmouth Herald reports (https://bit.ly/2kP4hGE ) that North Hampton selectmen claimed in a letter to Portsmouth Mayor Jack Blalock that the town hasn’t been consulted on decisions made by the Coakley Landfill Group “within no less than five years.”

City Attorney Robert Sullivan has said the group includes Portsmouth and North Hampton.

Officials and residents in North Hampton and Greenland, where the Coakley landfill is located, are concerned that contaminants from the landfill are threatening the area’s residential drinking wells.

North Hampton selectmen are asking Portsmouth officials to open the group meetings and publish notices and minutes of the meetings.
