EPA Proposes Revised Cleanup Plan for Wisconsin Landfill and Recycling Site

The Lemberger Landfill and the Lemberger Transport & Recycling Superfund site in Whitelaw, Wisconsin has undergone five cleanup reviews since 1995.

The EPA proposed the modification of groundwater and waste cleanup at the Lemberger Landfill and Lemberger Transport & Recycling Superfund sites in Manitowoc County, Wisconsin on October 14.

The agency wants to switch the groundwater cleanup for both sites from extracting and treating contaminated groundwater to a process called “monitored natural attenuation.” It is also proposed that the cleanup for waste materials be changed from “no further action” to requiring controls to be put in place to prevent future risk.

The groundwater cleanup standards for some of the sites’ contaminants are also up for adjustment.

The EPA is accepting comments on the proposed plan until November 11. More information on the cleanup plan can be found at epa.gov.
