From the mid-1950s to 1972, the 58-acre Boundary Road Landfill Superfund Site (also known as the Lauer I Sanitary Landfill), located in Menomonee Falls, Wisconsin, accepted a variety of municipal and industrial wastes. The owners closed and covered the site in 1973. It took several years for the owners to vegetate the cover and properly abandon the site. In 1973 and 1974, state inspectors identified holes in the berm around the site that allowed leachate from a collection pond to escape into a ditch that drains into the Menomonee River. In 1981, the owner installed an underground wall of clay materials between the landfill and the pond to stem the flow of leachate. Currently, Waste Management of Wisconsin (Waste Management) collects leachate accumulating behind the cut-off wall and sends it to a municipal wastewater treatment plant. Approximately 23,500 individuals reside within a three-mile radius of the site. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) proposed the site for the National Priorities List (NPL) in September 1983 and finalized the site on the NPL in September 1984. Site Responsibility This site is being addressed through state enforcement of potentially responsible parties' actions.
