EPA Superfund Program: RICHARDSON HILL ROAD LANDFILL/POND, SIDNEY CENTER, NY

Superfund Site Profile

The Richards Hill Road Landfill/Pond site is located in Sidney and Masonville, New York. The landfill accepted municipal wastes, including spent oils from the Scintilla Division of Bendix Corporation (predecessor to Honeywell International, Inc. and Amphenol Corp.) from 1964 to 1969. Landfill operations contaminated soils, sediment and groundwater with hazardous chemicals. The site consists of two sections – the South Area and the North Area. The South Area contains an 8-acre landfill, South Pond and Herrick Hollow Creek. The North Area includes two small disposal trenches and a manmade surface water body called North Pond. Following immediate actions to protect human health and the environment, the long-term groundwater treatment and monitoring are ongoing. Under current conditions at the site, potential or actual human exposures are under control.
