EPA stepping up oversight at Clinton Landfill

Posted:

Clinton – The state EPA says it will step up oversight at the Clinton landfill.

 

The site's already taking in some hazardous wastes and has asked the US EPA for permission to accept carcinogenic PCB's. Local government and citizen's groups oppose the idea because the landfill is above the Mahomet Aquifer.

 

Now the EPA says it will increase testing of groundwater at the landfill and do more frequent onsite inspections.
