Determination of Site Feasibility – The primary document containing the DNR’s decision.

Project Summary for the Feasibility Determination – A summary of the feasibility determination and the proposed landfill expansion.

Response to Comments Received During Feasibility Review Period – DNR response to the 133 public comments on the Orchard Ridge Landfill, Eastern Expansion, Southern Unit (BRL Superfund Site)

The Wisconsin DNR has determined the Eastern Expansion, Southern Unit (Boundary Road Superfund Site) proposal submitted by Waste Management of Wisconsin, Inc. (WMWI) for the Orchard Ridge Landfill in Menomonee Falls is feasible. A feasibility determination is not an approval to begin construction. Before any construction can begin WMWI will have to submit a Plan of Operation to the DNR that includes specific details on landfill design as well as a waste excavation and relocation plan. Details on how waste, air and groundwater will be tested and monitored will also be required.

WEAL continues to communicate with the DNR on the proposed expansion and will be posting updates as they occur.

To view the draft redevelopment plan and DNR comments on the plan go to: Environmental Cleanup & Brownfields Redevelopment BRRTS on the Web
