EPA Superfund Program: WHITE FARM EQUIPMENT CO. DUMP, CHARLES CITY, IA

Superfund Site Profile

The 20-acre White Farm Equipment Company Dump site is located along the northern edge of the city of Charles City, Iowa. Starting in the 1920s, the White Farm Equipment Company's operations generated foundry sand, sludges and dust from air pollution control equipment. Between 1971 and 1985, the plant intermittently disposed of foundry sands, baghouse dust and other industrial wastes at the site. About 650,000 cubic yards of these wastes were placed on site. The remedy was completed in 1995 with the completion of a cap of the landfill. EPA took the site off the National Priorities List (NPL) in 2000. Groundwater monitoring and Site maintenance are the remaining actions being conducted at the Site.
