Superfund Site Profile

SITE BACKGROUND

www.epa.gov/superfund/darlinghill

The Darling Hill Dump site is an inactive dump on about 3.5 acres at the top of a steep hill along Darling Hill Road in rural Lyndon, Vermont. From 1952 to 1989, the dump was used for the disposal of municipal and industrial wastes, including metal plating rinse waters, alkali degreasers and organic solvents. The investigation of the site revealed only low levels of contamination in the ground water. Carbon filters were installed on the public water supply to remove the low-level contamination. EPA determined that no cleanup action was necessary and took the site off the Superfund program’s National Priorities List (NPL) in 1999.
