Stage of Clean-up: Construction Completed
Conditions at proposal (June 24, 1988): Lakeland Disposal Service, Inc., formerly operated a 40-acre sanitary landfill in Claypool, Kosciusko County, Indiana. The site accepted general refuse and hazardous waste from 1974 to September 1, 1978, when it was ordered closed by the Kosciusko Circuit Court because of improper operations. The landfill was permitted by the Indiana Stream Pollution Control Board to accept municipal and certain industrial wastes from specific facilities. In 1975, the landfill received approval for disposal of various industrial sludges, including CHROME hydroxide, paint, zinc-selenium hydroxide, ALUMINUM hydroxide, copper-nickel-chrome hydroxide, and zinc-lead-cadmium. On September 25, 1978, a new owner began subdividing and selling portions of the landfill to mobile home owners. In 1983, the Indiana State Board of Health obtained a State court order requiring that all development on the landfill be stopped, that homes be located elsewhere, and that the site not be excavated in the future.
