The Northside Sanitary Landfill (NSL) and the Environmental Conservation and Chemical Corporation (ECC) are adjacent sites located in Boone County, Indiana. These two sites have been combined into the first remedial action because of their close proximity and similarities in contaminants. Between 1977 and 1981 some still bottom and oily liquid wastes were permitted to be disposed of at NSL. Sometime between 1955 and 1962, NSL began landfill operations. From 1972 to 1973, numerous operational deficiencies, including failure to cover refuse, surface burning, underground fires, leachate and vermin problems resulted in three Indiana State Board of Health (ISBH) orders to cease operations. Ground water, surface water, soil and sediments are contaminated with inorganics, organics, pesticides, acids, base-neutral compounds, oils and VOCs including benzene, 1,1-DCE and TCE. The recommended alternative for the two sites combined includes: implementing deed and access restrictions to prevent future site development; excavation and dewatering of 4,200 cu yds. of leachate soils and sediments with onsite disposal under a RCRA multi-layer cap.
