The Kummer Sanitary Landfill is a 40-acre site located in Northern Township, Beltrami County, Minnesota. Between 1971 and 1983 the site operated as a sanitary landfill, accepting mixed municipal waste. Beginning in 1974, demolition debris consisting of fly ash and sawdust were disposed of onsite. In 1982 and 1983 the Minnesota Pollution Control Agency sampled ground water from onsite monitoring wells and discovered 19 VOCS including TCE, PCE, and benzene. In 1984, VOCs were also discovered in offsite shallow residential wells downgradient of the site; consequently, in 1985 the site was ordered closed. Approximately 244 homes affected by contaminated ground water. Although there is no documentation of hazardous waste disposal at the site, it is believed that small quantities of wastes such as paint thinner, solvents, and pesticides were included in municipal wastes. The primary contaminants of concern affecting ground water and soil are VOCs such as TCF, PCE and benzene. The selected remedial action for the site is included.
