Attorney General's Office to Review Brady Sullivan Dumping Incident in Londonderry

Jack Rodolico
Soil that contaminated groundwater in Londonderry originated from Mill West, a Brady Sullivan property in Manchester.

The Department of Environmental Services has referred an illegal dumping case involving Brady Sullivan Properties to the New Hampshire Attorney General's office for review. 

In 2013, Brady Sullivan Properties was responsible for moving more than 600 tons of contaminated soil from a Manchester mill yard to a gravel pit in Londonderry.  Groundwater below the dumping site is contaminated with PCE, a chemical linked to cancer.

Now, the attorney general's office will review the case. This is not the first time the attorney general's office has gotten involved in enforcement against Brady Sullivan Properties.

In 2014, the developer settled a suit brought by the state, which alleged that it sold a subdivision in Laconia without disclosing a number of code violations that threatened health and safety.

Brady Sullivan is also the subject of an ongoing federal probe regarding the dumping of toxins at a property it owns in Lawrence, Mass.
