The Burrows Sanitation site is a ten-acre site located on 54th Avenue in Hartford Township, Van Buren County, Michigan. The site was used for dewatering and disposing of metal hydroxide sludges, waste coolants, and soluble oils. Sampling of these areas indicates that the former source materials were removed so they no longer present a potential health threat via direct contact or ingestion. Wastes similar to the excavated wastes remain in the newly identified Spill Area No. 2. Principal contaminants include chromium, copper, lead, nickel, zinc, and cyanide. Test results also indicate that the surface water and sediments in the Northwest Wetland and drainage canal have been impacted by the site. In addition, onsite monitoring wells indicate a limited chemical plume or plumes related to site activities.
