Stan’s Trucking, located at 1536 School Road, is a former Type II landfill used historically for general refuse, industrial wastes, and demolition wastes and was capped in 1984. Various remedial activities occurred over the next several decades, including the installation of a gas collection system to prevent methane gas leaks.

In November 2023 and February 2024, groundwater monitoring wells at the landfill were sampled for PFAS. The highest PFAS results were 260 ppt PFOA (compared to 8 ppt), and 54 ppt PFOS (compared to 16 ppt). Groundwater flow is to the east/northeast towards the Clinton River, approximately a half mile away.

Drinking water information

Municipal water is available in the area, although many residents still use private wells. EGLE, DHHS and local health departments have identified several nearby residential wells and plan to sample those in the spring of 2024.

Anticipated activities

Groundwater monitoring will continue and EGLE will evaluate data as it is received and expand sampling if necessary.
