The 72-acre Kentwood Landfill site is an inactive municipal landfill in Kentwood, Kent County, Michigan. Land use in the area is primarily residential and recreational. Twenty-two residences to the south and east of the site use ground water as their drinking water supply. The primary contaminants of concern affecting the debris, ground water, and leachate are VOCs including benzene, PCE, and TCE; other organics; and metals including arsenic, chromium, and lead. The selected remedial action for the site includes improving the landfill cap to include gas controls and a leachate collection system; pumping and pretreating ground water onsite along with collected leachate, as needed, before discharging to a POTW; monitoring sediment, ground water, surface water, and air.
