The 35-acre Colesville Municipal Landfill site is a former municipal and industrial landfill in Colesville, Broome County, New York. Land use in the area is rural, and wetlands and woodlands are present in the vicinity of the site. Many of the 1,921 residents living within three miles of the site use ground water from shallow and deep aquifers and springs as their drinking water. In 1983 and 1984, private investigations identified that upper portions of the ground water beneath the site and in the vicinity of the site were being contaminated by the landfill. The Record of Decision (ROD) provides a final remedy for the landfill waste and soil, leachate seeps, associated contaminated sediment, and ground water. The primary contaminants of concern affecting the soil, sediment, debris, and ground water are VOCs including benzene, PCE, TCA, TCE; and metals including arsenic. The selected remedial action for the site is included.
