The Charles George Land Reclamation Trust Landfill is a privately owned municipal and industrial waste landfill, operating since 1967. The landfill accepted and disposed of chemical waste between 1973 and 1975 under a hazardous waste disposal permit from the Massachusetts DEQE. Leachate from the landfill has contaminated nearby residential bedrock wells which were shutdown July 31, 1982 by order of the Massachusetts DEQE. In April 1983, the Charles George Land Reclamation Trust filed for the protection of the bankruptcy court. This is a National Priorities List site. The selected remedial action is to extend an existing water supply system to the Cannongate Condominium and local private well users whose wells have been found to be contaminated with volatile organic chemicals from the Charles George site. An RI/FS is being conducted to identify and evaluate remedial alternatives to mitigate threats to public health, welfare and the environment. Determination of future remedial actions will be made upon completion of this work.
