The 26-acre Master Disposal Service Landfill site is an inactive industrial landfill in the Town of Brookfield, Waukesha County, Wisconsin. The site overlies a surficial sand/gravel and dolomite aquifer system, which has been contaminated by onsite disposal activities. Onsite disposal of mainly industrial foundry sands and slags occurred between 1967 and 1982. Onsite disposal of hazardous wastes including inks, sludges, and solvents was also observed during this period. Investigations completed in 1990 identified negative impacts on surface water and ground water from the landfill sources. The Record of Decision (ROD) addresses source control as a final remedy and management of migration of ground water as an interim remedy. A subsequent ROD will address the final restoration of the surficial aquifer system. The primary contaminants of concern affecting the soil, debris, and ground water are VOCs including benzene, TCE, toluene, and xylenes; and metals including arsenic, chromium, and lead.
