The 160-acre Metamora Landfill site is an inactive, privately owned landfill in Metamora Township, Lapeer County, Michigan. Both wetland and woodland areas are present onsite. Landfill operations began in 1955 as an open dump, and the facility was upgraded in 1969. Industrial and municipal wastes, including approximately 35,000 drums, were accepted until the landfill closed in 1980. In 1981, the State sampled seven drums and identified several hazardous materials. A 1986 Record of Decision (ROD) for Operable Unit 1 (OU1) called for the excavation and disposal of the waste drums offsite at a RCRA incinerator. The ROD addresses ground water contimination of the shallow aquifer, as well as the generation of leachate at the landfill (OU2). The primary contaminants of concern in the landfill affecting debris and ground water are VOCs including benzene, PCE, TCE, and xylenes; and metals including arsenic and barium.
