EPA Superfund Program: HRANICA LANDFILL, BUFFALO TOWNSHIP, PA

Superfund Site Profile

The 15-acre Hranica Landfill site is located in Buffalo Township, Pennsylvania. A privately owned landfill operated on the site from 1966 to 1974 and received both municipal and hazardous wastes. By 1981, the site contained over 19,200 drums and other larger vessels of waste consisting of chlorinated solvents, paint pigments and metal sludge. These disposal activities contaminated groundwater and soil with hazardous chemicals. Following cleanup, operation and maintenance activities are ongoing. EPA took the site off the Superfund program’s National Priorities List (NPL) in 1997.
