EPA Holding a Public Comment Period
on a Proposed Cleanup Plan
Hunt’s Disposal Landfill Superfund Site
Caledonia, Wisconsin
Public Comment Period: Sept. 3 – October 2, 2109
U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) recently issued a proposed plan that evaluated several
alternatives for cleaning up pollution at Hunt’s Disposal Landfill Superfund site in Caldonia, Wis.
EPA is proposing to permanently shut down the groundwater extraction and treatment system at the
site and use “monitored natural attenuation” (MNA) to treat contaminants in the groundwater. MNA
is used as a cleanup remedy when the source of contamination has been removed or contained, and
only low concentrations of contaminants remain in the groundwater.
