The 35-acre Kummer Sanitary Landfill site is an inactive mixed municipal waste landfill in Northern Township, Beltrami County, Minnesota, approximately one mile west of Lake Bemidji. A large residential area lies approximately 1,000 feet east of the site, and there is a hospital directly southwest. The privately owned landfill was operated from 1971 until 1985; however, business records for the site are virtually nonexistent. Operations at the landfill caused the State to take a number of administrative and enforcement actions. Following the discovery of ground water contamination in Northern Township in 1984, the State issued a public health advisory concerning the well water and provided a temporary water supply. Two previous Records of Decision (RODs) in 1985 and 1988 documented the provision of an alternative water supply for the Northern municipal water system as Operable Unit 1 (OU1), and a source control Operable Unit (OU2), which included a cover system to control the source of contamination (OU3). The final ROD addresses ground water contamination. The primary contaminants of concern affecting the ground water are VOCs including benzene, PCE, TCE, and vinyl chloride.
