Superfund Site: MIDDLETOWN ROAD DUMP, ANNAPOLIS, MD
Superfund Site Profile
The 15-acre Middletown Road Dump site is located in Annapolis, Maryland. The now-inactive dump took in rubble, construction debris, and municipal and industrial waste for several decades without proper state permits. In 1981, the State of Maryland discovered about 40 crushed and deteriorating drums and four dumpster loads of debris contaminated with hazardous substances such as paint sludges and solvents. Operations contaminated soil with heavy metals and other chemicals. After cleanup, EPA took the site off the Superfund program’s National Priorities List (NPL) in April 1998.
