RR 1

The Lawrence Todtz Farm site is located in a predominantly agricultural area of Clinton and covers slightly over 13 acres. Municipal solid waste and industrial solid and liquid wastes were disposed of at the site from 1958 to 1975. The E.I. DuPont de Nemours Company's cellophane plant buried 4,300 tons of liquid waste at the site from 1972 to 1975. The wastes were reported to include strong acids and bases, plasticizers, resins, alcohols, inorganic salts, paints, and pigments. The site was closed in 1975 and capped with approximately 2 feet of "red sugar" clay and topsoil overlay. One hundred people live within 1 mile of the site. Within ΒΌ mile of the site are 20 farmhouses with private wells for drinking water. Murphy's Lake (formerly Willow Lake) and Bandixen Lake, located near the site, are used for recreational activities such as fishing and swimming. Two chemical industrial plants are located within a mile of the landfill. One of these plants is no longer in operation. Evidence of deer, raccoon, and cattle has been seen on the site and wild geese were observed on the site and the surrounding lakes. Site Responsibility: This site was addressed through Federal and potentially responsible parties' actions.
