Old Closed Landfills<br />Sixty-four (64) pre-1998 closed landfills are without groundwater monitoring systems.<br />Seventeen (17) have had groundwater use surveys completed<br />
OCL Grants<br /><ul><li>Four Old Closed Landfills have been identified and offered a grant for funding to provide water to impacted communities, add ground water monitoring, or repair the cap.
One additional facility has been identified, but has not been offered the grant solicitation at this time.</li></li></ul><li>Eligibility<br />Counties or Municipalities are eligible for this grant offering, if:<br />they operated a Class I landfill permitted by the Department that is now closed; and,<br />the closed landfill does not have a composite liner system; and,<br />the Department determines that the landfill is causing harm to health or the environment through contamination of ground water. <br />
