EPA releases report on Allied Landfill cleanup options

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) recently completed and released the Feasibility Study Report for Allied Paper Landfill – Operable Unit 1 as part of the Superfund cleanup process. Located between Alcott and Cork Streets in Kalamazoo, the historic landfill has PCB contamination from the disposal of paper-making residuals at the property.

The Feasibility Study evaluates four different potential cleanup alternatives from “no action” to “total removal and off-site disposal”. The EPA fact sheet provides a brief summary of the different alternatives with approximate cost estimates. You can also read about the nine evaluation criteria EPA will use to select the final alternative to implement at the site.
