NPL Site Narrative for Skinner Landfill
West Chester, Ohio
Federal Register Notice: September 08, 1983
Conditions at listing (December 1982): The Skinner Landfill covers 85 acres in West Chester, Ohio, on a ridge about 30 feet above the East Fork of Mill Creek. The privately owned facility, which was never licensed, closed in the early 1970s. On-site are (1) about 100 drums containing a variety of chlorinated organics, other organics, and heavy metals and (2) a lagoon once used to dispose of similar bulk wastes. The owner indicated that old demolition bombs were also disposed of on-site.
Although no contaminants have been detected leaving the site at this time, the potential exists for contamination of private drinking wells and surface water.
Status (July 1983): EPA is considering various alternatives for the site.
