OLD LANDFILLS --
OLD LANDFILLS, 2010 (Source scale is unknown)
Shows landfills that are finished with their post-closure care and older landfills that
were never permitted. Post-closure care requires submittal of documentation to IDEM,
maintenance of the cover, and methane and ground water monitoring, where applicable.
Landfills that are finished with post-closure care no longer submit information, IDEM
inspects them less frequently, and they disappear off the Permit Managerís list.
These sites closed under a number of different rules and regulations. Some of them were
never permitted. Many contain solid waste, but some contain industrial waste. It is
a varied dataset with only one thing in common: they are not submitting information
to IDEM, they are not regularly inspected, and they are not considered part of the
IDEM permit universe.

of Land Quality.
Data are current as of April 16, 2010.
