Background

Millcreek Dump, located adjacent to the Erie International Airport, was added to the National Priorities List (NPL) on September 21, 1984. The site was a former freshwater wetland that was used as a dump for foundry sands, solvents, waste oils, and other industrial and municipal wastes, resulting in the contamination of the soils, sediments and underlying groundwater. The site currently includes a capped landfill, freshwater wetland and flood retention basin, and a groundwater treatment plant and is in long term operation and maintenance.
