HEALTH CONSULTATION

STAN'S TRUCKING INCORPORATED
AVON TOWNSHIP (ROCHESTER HILLS), OAKLAND COUNTY, MICHIGAN


CONCLUSIONS

Available data and information indicate that subsurface materials, groundwater, and leachate on Stan's Trucking Incorporated (a/k/a Six Star Limited Landfill) property are contaminated with metals and volatile organic compounds. However, under current conditions, the property does not pose any apparent public health hazard. No apparent human exposure to contaminated media is occurring, even though access to the property is inadequately restricted. Surface soils on the property do not contain any elevated concentrations of any contaminant, and possible exposure to leachate breakouts is not likely to be frequent or sustained. Contamination in the groundwater reached nearby residential wells in the past, and contaminated wells have been replaced with connections to a municipal water system.

Assessors do not know any proposed uses for the property. Some scenarios for the future might result in human exposure to waste or leachate, either for workers adapting the property to its intended use or for future workers on the property.


RECOMMENDATIONS

Access to the property should be better restricted.

The cap over the former landfill should be maintained to prevent erosion and to correct leachate seepage.

Any future use of the property must be designed and carried out to prevent exposure to waste or leachate for workers, future users, and future residents.

Additional environmental data or information regarding the future use of this property may indicate a need for future health consultations.
