Superfund Site: LINDANE DUMP

Superfund Site Profile


The Lindane Dump site is located in Harrison Township in Allegheny County, Pennsylvania. The area consists of a 14-acre park and a 47.5-acre lower project zone that includes a closed landfill area. Pesticide and industrial waste were dumped at the site from the mid 1800s to the 1980s. Cleanup activities included capping the site and constructing a leachate collection and treatment system. Operation and maintenance activities at the site are ongoing.

After the completion of cleanup activities at the site in 1999, the Alsco Community Park was restored. The park now includes tennis courts, baseball fields, a utility building, pedestrian paths, picnic areas, open space and parking areas.
