A group of Nashua residents will advocate for the cleanup and revitalization of the Mohawk Tannery site at a public meeting at Nashua City Hall Auditorium hosted by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency on Wednesday, July 25.

The Mohawk Tannery site contains toxic, cancer-causing waste including asbestos and dioxin that poses serious health threats to Nashua and nearby communities.

Nashua residents are calling for a safe, permanent cleanup of the Tannery, along with responsible development that could attract new business and turn the site from a public health hazard to a source of city pride.

Residents, including members of the local group North-East-West (N.E.W.) Nashua Civic Association, will speak out at Wednesday’s hearing to urge the EPA to take real action.

Who: Nashua residents and members of the local group N.E.W. (North-East-West) Nashua Civic Association, representatives from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA)

What: Public Meeting on the Mohawk Tannery Site with the EPA in Nashua

When: Wednesday, July 25, 6:30 p.m.

Where: Nashua City Hall Auditorium, 3rd floor, 229 Main St, Nashua, NH

Why: Hazardous waste at the Mohawk Tannery is a danger to the health of our children and could threaten downstream communities for generations. Responsible clean-up and development of the Tannery footprint would protect our health and environment and boost business in our city.
