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. You may comment in writing online at http://www.epa.gov/superfund/hunts-disposal-landfill. You can also submit written comments postmarked by October 2, 2019. Mail to: Ruth Muhtsun Community Involvement Coordinator EPA Region 5 (RE-6J) 77 W. Jackson Blvd. Chicago, IL 60604 If there is public interest, EPA will hold a meeting on this proposed plan so the community can provide oral comments. Please contact Ruth Muhtsun by September 9, 2019 to request a meeting. The proposed cleanup plan is explained in a fact sheet available at http://www.epa.gov/superfund/hunts-disposal-landfill. More details are in the proposed plan and other site-related environmental reports, which can be found at the same website and at the Caledonia Village Hall, 5043 Chester Lane.
