The Industrial Waste Area Group III and the Landfill Group, which represent the majority of the potentially liable persons responsible for Pasco Landfill
cleanup, have each submitted a draft Focused Feasibility Study (FFS) to the Washington State Department of Ecology (Ecology) evaluating final cleanup options for all the landfill zones.
The public is invited to comment on the draft FFS reports to provide input on final cleanup for each waste area. We will use information from the FFS reports, along with all interim cleanup actions and public input, to write the final cleanup plan for the Pasco Landfill. This plan will be available for public comment before becoming final.
The Pasco Landfill is about 1.5 miles northeast of the City of Pasco, north of the intersection of Kahlotus Road with U.S. Highway 12. The landfill property covers nearly 250 acres and is surrounded by agriculture and commercial businesses. The Basin Disposal transfer station on Dietrich Road is at the southern end of the landfill. The landfill no longer accepts waste and is closed to the public. Gates, fencing, and signs restrict access to this active cleanup site.
