EPA Proposes Change to Cleanup Plan for West Kl Avenue Landfill; Meeting
Oct. 2, 7 P.M.

CHICAGO (Sept. 30, 2002)  U.S. Environmental Protection Agency Region 5
has proposed a change to the cleanup plan for the West KL Avenue Landfill
Superfund site in Kalamazoo, Mich.  A meeting to discuss the proposed
change will be held Wednesday, Oct. 2, at 7 p.m. in Oshtemo Township Hall,
7275 W. Main St.  Oral and written comments on the plan will be accepted
at the meeting and throughout a formal 30-day public comment period which
ends Oct. 16, 2002.

The 87-acre site, at the intersection of West KL Avenue and 4th St., was
established as a private dump about 1950, eventually becoming a
commercial/industrial landfill owned by Kalamazoo County.  It was closed
in 1979 because contamination was found in nearby water wells.  In the
early 1980s, the site was covered with a landfill cap.  In 1982, it was
placed on the Superfund National Priorities List.  EPA selected a cleanup
plan in 1990.

For special needs or accommodations at the meeting or for more information
about the site, contact community involvement coordinator Dave Novak,
(800) 621-8431, ext. 67478 or novak.dave@epa.gov.  A fact sheet available
from Novak will also be distributed at the Oct. 2 meeting.  Site documents
are on file at the Oshtemo Branch of the Kalamazoo Public Library, 7265 W.
Main St.
