NPL Site Narrative for City Disposal Corp. Landfill

Dunn, Wisconsin

Federal Register Notice:  September 21, 1984

Conditions at listing (September 1983): City Disposal Corp. (owned by Waste Management of Wisconsin, Inc.) filled about 35 acres of a 58-acre landfill in the Town of Dunn, Dane County, Wisconsin, from 1969 to 1978. In a separate area, the operator buried an estimated 5,000 to 10,000 drums of industrial wastes (including solvents from the plastic fabrication industry and a water-lube oil mixture) and smaller quantities of paint waste. The site is less than 400 feet from a branch of Bad Fish Creek, and there is a potential to contaminate ground water. The landfill, now closed and covered, is unlined and rests on silty soils.

Status (June 1984): EPA is negotiating for cleanup of the site by a party potentially responsible for wastes associated with the site.
