The 22-acre Strasburg Landfill site is an inactive landfill located within a 220-acre tract of land in Newlin and West Bradford Townships, Chester County, Pennsylvania. The 201 single-family residences that surround the site use ground water as a source of drinking water. In 1983, the owners were cited for violations, which they failed to correct, and the State ordered the landfill closed. Closure involved constructing a PVC cover and soil and vegetation layer. A 1989 Record of Decision (ROD) addressed contaminated residential wells and exposure pathways, and provided an interim remedy to limit site access. The selected interim remedial action for the site includes implementing site access restrictions including fencing, access roads, the sediment pond, air stripping building, and monitoring wells; and maintaining the fence and the existing cap.
