The Kohler Company Landfill site is located within the corporate limits of the Village of Kohler, Wisconson. It is situated on an 82-acre parcel of land which is bounded on the south, east, and far west by the Sheboygan River, to the west and south by Hwy. A and to the north by County Highway PP, formerly State Highway 28. Aproximately one-half of the permitted 82-acre parcel has mever been used for disposal activities.
Remedy:  The selected remedy is Alternative 11, base cap and groundwater intercenptor drain, that addresses groudwater contaimation migrating from the landfill. This alternative includes: construction of the multilayer cap and institutional controls selected under the 1992 Source Control ROD; construction of a groundwater intercepteor drain along the eastern and southern downgradient edge of the landfill, to an approximate depth of 10', approximately 2500' long, to intercept contaminated groundwater by replacing the toe drain indentified in the 1992 Source Control ROD; natural attenuation to restore the contaminated groundwater which has already migrated past the edge of waste; discharge of collected groundwater to a forcemain which passes near the landfill site for eventual discharge to the Sheboygan Sewage Treatment Plant; and long-term monitoring to measure the effectiveness of the remedy.
