Abstract
The Rose Township Dump site is located in rural Rose Township, Oakland County, Michigan. The 110-acre site comprises an upland area almost completely surrounded by wetlands, with an abundance of wildlife onsite. From 1966 to 1968 an unknown number of drums containing solvents, paint sludges and PCBs were buried in a 12-acre portion of the site. Bulk wastes were also discharged to the surface or into shallow lagoons or pits in the area. In June 1979, the Michigan Department of Natural Resources (MDNR) tested domestic wells in the area and found low level TCE and PCE contamination. The contamination made it necessary to supply bottled water to residents. Based on 1979 drum sampling results, funds were appropriated for an immediate removal action, which disposed of over 5,000 drums offsite. Further testing between 1980 and 1982 indicated the presence of organic chemical contamination in the ground water. Currently, the primary contaminants of concern affecting the soil and ground water include: VOCs, PAHs, PCBs, organics and inorganics.
