Background

The 65-acre site is comprised of the ground water and five areas: the South Landfill; the North Landfill; the Liquid Disposal Area; the Ash Disposal Pit; the Ash Pile. The landfills and an incinerator opened in 1968 to process and dispose of municipal and industrial wastes. The wastes were burned or landfilled on site. Liquid wastes including oils and solvents were dumped and buried on site. A contaminated underground area, or plume, of organic chemicals flowed from the liquid disposal area into the nearby Great Miami River. This plume contaminated many residential wells.

The site was cleaned up in the mid-1990s. The Ash Disposal pit was covered with a water-resistant cap. The Ash Pile was moved to the South Landfill and capped. The North Landfill and Liquid Disposal areas were also capped. Soil vapor extraction and ground water pump and treat systems were installed in the Liquid Disposal area. Between 4 and 6 million gallons of contaminated ground water are being removed and sent to the Troy Treatment Plant. The SVE system successfully removed the organic chemicals and was shut down in 2000. Ground-water treatment is expected to continue at least 10 more years.
