Seacoast Online reports that dredging will soon begin along the Squamscott River to remove contaminated sediment left over by the Exeter Gas Light Company, which operated from 1864 to 1955. In the process of converting coal into natural gas, the plant contaminated soil and groundwater along the river.

Around 200 cubic yards of material will be removed from the river during the dredging, which is expected to run through mid-December.
