SITE BACKGROUND

The 55-acre Centralia Municipal Landfill site is located in Centralia, Washington. From 1958 until 1994, the on-site landfill accepted both municipal and industrial waste, including soil containing polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs), paint waste and pesticide waste. These activities contaminated soil, groundwater and surface water with heavy metals and hazardous chemicals. Following cleanup, operation and maintenance activities are ongoing.
