Abstract:  The Central Landfill Superfund Site is situated on a 612-acre parcel ("the Facility") located at 65 Shun Pike in Johnston, Rhode Island. The Central Landfill is about 10 miles west-southwest of Providence, Rhode Island. The Central Landfill Superfund Site ("the Site") is defined as the 154 acres located in the central portion of RIRRC property that has been licensed for municipal solid waste landfilling by the State of Rhode Island. The 154 acre Central Landfill Superfund Site is comprised of two areas: a 121 acre area, also known as the Phase 1 area; and a 33 acre expansion area also known as the Phase 2 and 3 areas. The 121 acre, Phase 1 area is where disposal of hazardous and non-hazardous wastes historically took place at the Site. Waste disposal activities in the Phase 1 area stopped in April 1993. Municipal solid waste landfilling in the Phase 2 and 3 areas is ongoing. The properties within a radius of approximately 2,500 feet of the landfill are primarily composed of undeveloped property, residential property and commercial/agricultural property.
Remedy:  EPA has determined that no further remedial action, beyond the OU1 source control remedy, is necessary to protect human health and the environment. However, because the OU1 source control remedy will result in hazardous substances remaining on-Site above health-based levels, Site reviews will be conducted at a minimum every five years to ensure that human health and the environment are being protected. The first "Five-Year Review" for the Site is scheduled to be completed in 2003.
