SITE BACKGROUND

The Parker Sanitary Landfill site is located in Lyndonville, Vermont. A solid waste landfill operated on site from 1972 until 1992. Before 1983, a large amount of hazardous waste (liquids and sludges) was disposed of at this location and were poured/placed directly onto the ground. These activities led to groundwater contamination and affected private wells in the area. Following construction of the site’s remedy, operation and maintenance activities and groundwater treatment and monitoring are ongoing.
