The 19-acre Old Municipal Landfill site is located near the City of Columbus in Bartholomew County, Indiana. The site, located in the 100-year floodplain of the East Fork of the White River, is bounded by farmland, state roads, and an inactive gravel quarry pond. Current land use in the vicinity of the site includes an abandoned shooting range, concrete mixing operation, and the City of Columbus POTW. The waste material was dumped directly on the ground surface and was exposed to the elements. Open burning of waste material occurred regularly. Annual spring flooding caused the waste material to become submerged periodically. In 1990, the PRPs, under direct guidance of the state and EPA, conducted an investigation to assess the potential impacts of the waste material deposited in the landfill on soil, ground water, surface water, and river sediments in the vicinity of the site. Based upon findings of the remedial investigation and evaluation of current site risks, EPA concluded that the site currently poses no immediate or long-term risks to human health and the environment. The conclusion is based on current site conditions with the assumption that these conditions will not change. The selected remedial action for the site is no further action (modified), which includes ground water monitoring and a five-year review of site conditions to evaluate the protectiveness of the remedy.
