Superfund Site Profile
The Red Penn Sanitation Co. Landfill site is located in Peewee Valley, Kentucky. It includes the area where a landfill and borrow area operated from 1954 to 1986. EPA placed the site on the Superfund program’s National Priorities List (NPL) in 1989 because of contaminated groundwater, leachate, soil and surface water resulting from waste handling practices. EPA, the Kentucky Department for Environmental Protection (KDEP) and the site’s potentially responsible parties (PRPs) have investigated site conditions and taken steps to clean up the site in order to protect people and the environment from contamination. Following site investigations, EPA determined that site contamination does not pose a threat to people and the environment. By properly closing the landfill, EPA, KDEP and the site’s PRPs continue to protect people and the environment from site contamination.
