Background

The 4-acre Cemetery Dump site is located in Rose Township, Michigan. In the late 1960s or early 1970s, illegal dumping resulted in 300 to 600 barrels containing unknown industrial wastes being dumped or buried on site. Drum fragments, soil and groundwater contained hazardous chemicals. Following cleanup, EPA took the site off the Superfund program’s National Priorities List (NPL) in 1995.
