Six foot two in height, EarthImage scales the ash mound at Holly Hill. Goodwill trailer on top visible.

The Public Works Dept stores pipes and curbing on top of the pile

The ashes remain from operations of the municipal incinerator, now replaced with a transfer station.  The old incinerator incompletely burned metals fed into it, and those metals now leech into Tom’s Brook.

The Wetlands Agency requested testing of metals in this sediment pond:

test results reported by DPW to IWWA from October 2011
