The Belvidere Landfill, is located just outside the City of Belvidere, County of Boone, Illinois. The City of Belvidere owned the landfill from 1939 to 1973, operating first as a municipal landfill until 1965 and then as an industrial landfill until 1973. The primary contaminants of concern affecting the soil and ground water include: organics, PCBs, PAHs, metals, and lead. The selected remedial action for the site includes: RCRA Subtitle C capping over the 19.3-acre landfill; treatment or containment of soil from the drum disposal area following resampling to determine the magnitude of PCB contamination; ground water pump and treatment possibly using air stripping with discharge to either the Kishwaukee River or the city treatment plant; ground water monitoring; pond and river fish monitoring; installation of an upgraded fence; deed restrictions to control unacceptable onsite activities and construction; and flood control measures to prevent erosion of the cap and landfill contents.
