Case Description

The 35-acre Fort Wayne Reduction Site is a former municipal landfill and waste disposal facility located east of the City of Fort Wayne, Indiana along the Maumee River. Between 1967 and 1976, wastes were accepted at the facility.

The Site was placed on the National Priorities List (NPL) in 1986. A long term remedial action plan to cleanup the Fort Wayne Reduction Site was formalized in the Record of Decision, signed August 26, 1988. On July 18, 1989, SCA Services of Indiana, Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Waste Management, entered into a Consent Decree with US EPA and IDEM to implement the remedy at the Fort Wayne Reduction Site.

The remedy was constructed in phases from 1990 through 1994. The remedy consisted of a soil cover over the eastern and western portions of the site, a drum removal and off site waste disposal operation, and the installation of a groundwater collection and treatment facility. Groundwater collection and treatment continues, with the treated groundwater being discharged to the Fort Wayne Sanitary Sewer System. Operation and maintenance activities began following completion of the construction of each phase, and are ongoing.
