The Ionia City Landfill site is a 20-acre municipally owned landfill in the southeast corner of Ionia, Michigan. The landfill was operated from the 1950s until about 1969, during which time industrial, commercial, and municipal wastes were disposed of at the site, including drummed liquids and solids from industrial sources. Drums of ignitable liquid wastes were reportedly burned until 1965. A State investigation in 1981 revealed exposed drums containing paint wastes, thinners, and industrial solvents as well as elevated levels of metals. Furthermore VOC- and metal-contaminated ground water was detected. EPA investigations began in 1982 and revealed VOC contamination in the Grand River tributary surface water. The primary contaminants of concern affecting the soil and debris are VOCs including vinyl chloride and methyl chloride, other organics, and metals including chromium.
