Forum on cleanup efforts at Carrs Mill landfill set

May 10, 1994

The Department of Public Works has scheduled a meeting on the closed Carrs Mill landfill at 7:30 p.m. May 25 in the cafeteria at Glenwood Middle School, 2680 Route 97.

The meeting is an effort by the department to keep the public informed about the drum removal, contents testing, cleanup and remediation plan for the landfill.

Carrs Mill is a former landfill site on Carrs Mill Road in western Howard County where about 840 drums of toxic material have been excavated during ground water investigations.

At the meeting, GeoTrans Inc., the county's environmental consultant, will present its conclusions for remediation of the site. County personnel are slated to discuss their plans for the landfill.

A copy of the report and other records pertaining to drum removal and the environmental assessment of the site are available for review at the Bureau of Environmental Services, Department of Public Works, George Howard Building, 3430 Court House Drive, Ellicott City.

A Carrs Mill landfill newsletter is sent to anyone who requests it. To be added to the mailing list, call 313-2013.
