Abstract Sanitary landfills can cause considerable harm to sensitive ecosystems if they are not properly located, designed, and managed. These reports summarize the proximity of sanitary landfills in Georgia to wetlands and deepwater habitats (i.e., rivers, lakes, streams, bays, etc.) and present data on the individual landfills. The sanitary landfills were identified on U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service's National Wetlands Inventory maps. The nearness or proximity of the sanitary landfills to wetlands and deepwater habitats was determined by drawing three concentric regions around the point representing the location of each landfill. The radii of the concentric regions were: 1/4 mile, 1/2 mile, and 1 mile. Most sanitary landfills in Georgia are located in or are close to either wetlands or deepwater habitats. All are located close to wetlands while one-third are close to deepwater habitats. These facilities have the potential to adversely affect sensitive ecosystems, such as wetlands and deepwater habitats, either through habitat alterations or through the migration of contaminants from sanitary landfills.
