Abstract The Powersville Landfill, which occupies approximately 15 acres, is located in Peach County, Georgia. Disposal records indicate pesticide manufacturing wastes were disposed of in the municipal section of the landfill prior to June 1973 and in the hazardous waste area between June 1973 and 1978. The landfill was closed in 1979 due to its location in a highly permeable sand and gravel aquifer. The primary contaminants of concern affecting the soil and ground water include: VOCs (vinyl chloride), organics, heavy metals (lead and chromium) and pesticides. The selected remedial action for the site includes: surface capping of hazardous waste and municipal fill areas using artifical material or clay, with grading, drainage and closure; installation of eight additional monitor wells (at a minimum) in the upper region of the aquifer to determine cap area leaching or migration; and extension of the municipal water supply pipe line as an alternate water supply.
