Background

The South 8th Street Landfill site consists of a 16-acre landfill that contains a 2.5-acre oily sludge pit in West Memphis, Arkansas. Waste disposal activities contaminated soil and groundwater with lead, polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs) and polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs). Following cleanup, EPA took the site off the Superfund program’s National Priorities List (NPL) in 2004.
