The four-acre Springfield Township Dump (Springfield) site is located on a 12-acre rural residential lot near Davisburg, Michigan. The site was used for unauthorized chemical waste disposal from about 1966 to 1968. There are about 25 homes within one mile of the site, with the nearest residence located about 800 feet away. All homes in the area are served by private drinking water wells.

The Michigan Department of Natural Resources (MDNR) first responded to the Springfield site in the 1970s. MDNR found that liquid wastes and paint sludges had been dumped into a low area of the site and that a large number of 55-gallon containers (drums) of liquid wastes were deposited throughout the area. In 1979 and1980, MDNR removed 1,500 drums of waste and hauled off 711 tons of contaminated soil for offsite disposal. MDNR also constructed a fence around the contaminant disposal area and left the remaining soil (and groundwater) contamination to be addressed by the United States Environmental Protection Agency (U.S. EPA) under its Comprehensive Environmental Response Compensation and Liability Act (CERCLA) authority.
