The report describes a case study that applies EPA-600/R-05/123--the guidance for conducting air pathway analyses of landfill gas emissions that are of interest to superfund remedial project managers, on-scene coordinators, facility owners, and potentially responsible parties. The case study exemplifies the use of the procedures and tools described in the guidance for evaluating LFG emissions to ambient air. The air pathway analysis is used to evaluate the inhalation risks to offsite receptors as well as the hazards of both onsite and offsite methane explosions and landfill fires. Landfill gases detected at the site were methane and chemicals of particular concern (COPCs) that encompassed nonmethane organic compounds, 1,1-dichloroethene, benzene, chlorobenzene, chloroethane, 1,4-dichlorobenzene, methylene chloride, toluene, trichloroethene, vinyl chloride, and xylenes. The report includes values of 90th percentile concentration of COPCs and isopleths of the COPCs overlaid on an aerial photograph of the site.
