The Morning Call reports that a leachate plume from this 50 year old unlined well has been found in one residential well and threatens 9 others. The chemicals in the leachate include unsafe levels of benzene, a known carcinogen. The landfill has been closed since 1981. Unfortunately with the land’s topography, installing municipal water lines will be difficult.
While I do not currently represent anyone at this site, I do represent hundreds of similarly situated people around the country in various landfill and environmental litigation.
