Groundwater contamination discovered around old landfill site
Under a benign-looking lush green hill in Hubbard County lurks a growing toxic concern.
The 9-acre former Pickett Landfill, which borders the Heartland Trail and is west of County Road 4, is about to become a household word once again. It now is a massive area of groundwater contamination that stretches from 204th Street on the north, then south and east of Ferndale Loop. It once held 93,269 cubic yards of municipal solid waste.
