The 10-acre Old Springfield Landfill site is located in Springfield, Vermont. The Town of Springfield operated the landfill between 1947 and 1968 for the disposal of municipal solid waste and hazardous industrial liquid and semi-liquid waste. Facility operations contaminated soils, sediment, surface water and groundwater with hazardous chemicals. Construction of the site’s remedy has been completed. Operations and maintenance activities and groundwater and leachate treatment are ongoing.
