Greenland wants state to dip into MTBE settlement money to buy it a $17.3M water line

Portsmouth Mayor Jack Blalock and Greenland Selectmen’s Chairman Vaughan Morgan sent a letter to Morse last week seeking $17.3 million in state MTBE money to extend a water line to homes around the Coakley landfill. Many Greenland residents are worried that chemicals leeching from the landfill will contaminate their residential drinking wells.
