The Forest Waste Disposal site consists of an 11-acre, abandoned municipal and industrial waste landfill and 9 surface impoundments. It is located in Genesee County, Michigan, 20 miles northeast of Flint, and is surrounded by agricultural land and undeveloped woodlands and wetlands. Forest Waste Disposal conducted landfill operations from 1972-1978, receiving limited types of liquid industrial waste, general household refuse, and drummed waste until 1978. Specific waste material found within the landfill includes PBB-contaminated feed, septic sludge, and drums containing primarily solid and liquid VOCs in high concentrations. The primary contaminants of concern affecting the soil and ground water are VOCs including toluene and TCE; other organics including pesticides, PAHs and PBBs; and metals including arsenic and lead. The selected remedial action for the site includes: removal and incineration of contaminated soil; installation of a containment system including a RCRA cap, slurry wall, dewatering system and a leachate collection system; and treatment and disposal of collected leachate; deed restrictions to prevent use of the ground water as a drinking water source; access restrictions; and ground water monitoring.
