Superfund Site Profile
The South Dayton Dump and Landfill is a former disposal area for industrial and municipal waste. The site is approximately 80 acres and includes a 15-acre pond, as well as property now occupied by an operating asphalt plant and other businesses. Open burning, landfilling and storage of hazardous waste throughout its half-century operation has resulted in contamination of soil and portions of the ground water aquifer underlying the site, potentially threatening the adjacent Great Miami River. Soil contains metals that include lead, copper, mercury and other chemicals. Groundwater contamination is mainly organic chemicals such as tetrachloroethylene, trichloroethylene, vinyl chloride, and benzene.
In 2006 the Agency and the potentially responsible parties signed an agreement for EPA to oversee the PRPs investigate the nature and extent of contamination, determine risks posed by the site to human health and the environment, and develop cleanup options.”
