The Waste Disposal Engineering (WDE) site, consisting of 73 acres of a 114-acre dump, is located in the City of Andover (formerly Grown Township), Anoka County, Minnesota. The site area is characterized by low relief with shallow water tables and numerous wetlands. Disposal of wastes was by burial or burning in pits or drenches. In 1968, WDE purchased the dump and was licensed by Grow Township to operate as a sanitary landfill. The pit received approximately 6,600 containers (ranging from one gallon pail to fifty-five gallon drums) from 1972 to 1974, in the form of acids, caustics, waste paints, spent solvents, plating sludges, and cyanides. The area of refuse/non-hazardous waste disposal covers an area of 73 acres.
