The 10-acre East Mt. Zion site is a privately owned, inactive landfill in Springettsbury Township, York County, Pennsylvania. The landfill is on a forested ridge along with recreational park lands and a residential subdivision. From 1955 to 1972, domestic, municipal and industrial wastes were disposed of onsite. In 1969 and 1971, the landfill was cited for improper disposal practices and was subsequently closed by the State in 1972. In 1983 and 1988, State investigations identified several contaminants in onsite ground water and leachate. The Record of Decision (ROD) addresses the ground water contamination by inhibiting the mobility of contaminants from the landfill. The primary contaminants of concern affecting the ground water are VOCs including vinyl chloride and benzene.
