An article was recently posted discussing the current state of the salt piles in Portsmouth after experiencing a collapse in September the previous year. One of the concerns is the salt’s proximity to the North Mill Pond and it’s fragile ecosystem.
According to the feature:
“Earlier this month, Granite State Minerals completed a DES[NH Department of Environmental Services]-approved restoration plan that made several improvements to the area and will allow salt to continue to be stored there. However, the maximum height of the pile will be 34 feet, roughly half of the approximate size of the pile when it collapsed.”
