Dewey Loeffel Landfill
In 2011, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency added the Dewey Loeffel Landfill site to the federal Superfund National Priorities List. The site includes the inactive hazardous waste disposal area, subsurface groundwater and several nearby surface water bodies contaminated by releases from the Dewey Loeffel Landfill property.
The New York State Department of Health, in partnership with the Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry, has worked for many years with community members and other interested stakeholders to provide important health information about contaminants at the Dewey Loeffel Landfill site. The State Health Department and federal Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry prepared the following documents to assist the community with questions and concerns about the site:
- Health Consultation, November 2013 (PDF, 401KB)
- Health Consultation, May 2003
- Report: Cancer Incidence Among Residents, June 2002
