The Charles George Landfill site is located approximately one mile southwest of the Town of Tyngsborough, Massachusetts. The 70-acre site is bounded by Flint Pond Marsh (wetland area) and Flint Pond, Dunstable Brook, and the Cannongate Condominium complex. Land use in the vicinity is predominantly rural and residential includes some light industry and seasonal livestock grazing. The landfill contains municipal waste disposed of onsite from the mid-1950s until the landfill closed in 1983. Hazardous industrial waste was also disposed of primarily in the western area of the site from 1973 until at least 1976. The site came to the attention of the Massachusetts Department of Environmental Quality Engineering when the deep bedrock wells in use by the Cannongate Condominium complex became contaminated with VOCs. The wells closed in 1982. EPA conducted ground water monitoring in 1981 and 1982 and also undertook emergency removal actions beginning in August 1983 and continuing through March 1984. The ROD encompasses the third and fourth operable units and focuses on the control and cleanup of contaminants that have spread or are spreading from the site, including the treatment of leachate collected as part of the cap system. The selected remedial action for this site is outlined.
