The Blosenski Landfill site is located on 13.6 acres in West Caln Township, Chester County, PA. The site is bordered by heavily wooded and agricultural areas. Approximately 467 residents live within one mile of the site. Beginning in the 1950s the site operated as a landfill accepting municipal and industrial wastes. Wastes were randomly dumped on the surface during the operating period, and included solvents, waste water treatment sludges, demolition and construction wastes, undercoating materials and open and leaking drums. In 1982, EPA conducted a Site Inspection and found serious ground water contamination. The primary contaminants of concern are VOCs including benzene, toluene and TCE, and inorganics including lead, cadmium, chromium and mercury. The selected remedial action for the site will be conducted in four phases.
