The J&L Landfill Superfund Site is approximately 17 acres in size and is located near the intersection of Hamlin and Dequindre Roads in Rochester Hills, Michigan. The J & L Landfill Site is bordered on the west by the Sandfill Landfill No. 1, the Kingston Landfill and the Six-Star Landfill; to the east by Sandfill Landfill No. 2 and the Sportsman Club Landfill; further east are the Hamlin Road Landfill and the Malo Tree Landfill; and to the north are the Mal Enterprises Landfill and the SOCRRA Landfills.  Residential homes exist just south of the Site along Hamlin Road.  Other homes are located to the northwest and east of the Site.  The components of the remedy selected in the 1994 J&L Landfill Site Record of Decision (ROD) for the landfill operable unit and 1997 J&L Landfill Site ROD for the groundwater operable unit have been implemented, and the Site remains in long term operation and maintenance (O&M).

Site Updates

March 2011

The soil/liner/clay landfill cap prevents surface water infiltration and subsequent contaminant migration off-site.  Closure and post closure maintenance and monitoring of the Site landfill and monitoring of the Site groundwater continue as part of the O&M program.  A public water supply main extension along Dequindre Road was completed in 2002, based on concern of the local groundwater quality, due to nine landfills identified in the area of a one-half mile radius surrounding the J&L Landfill Site.  The Site O&M program has been implemented under a cooperative agreement with the Michigan Department of Environmental Quality since the last five year review in 2006.  A third five year review is scheduled for completion in June 2011.
