The 70-acre G and H Landfill site is an inactive landfill in Shelby Township, Macomb County, Michigan. The site overlies two ground water aquifers, the uppermost of which is the source of drinking water for some eastern area residences and industries. From 1955 to 1973, G and H landfill accepted municipal refuse, and solid and liquid industrial wastes including solvents, paints, varnishes, and lacquers. The Record of Decision (ROD) addresses contaminated soil, sediment, and landfill material (OU1); and the contaminated ground water plume, landfill leachate, and oil seep. The selected remedial action for the site includes constructing a subsurface barrier wall around the perimeter of the landfill areas and oil seeps; instituting leachate collection and treatment; and excavating soil and sediment.
