The Mica Landfill site has been owned by Spokane County Utilities since 1972, and covers 65 acres near Mica, WA. Prior to 1991, the landfill was licensed by the State to handle hazardous, domestic, and industrial waste. Landfill operations ended in late 1991. Groundwater beneath the landfill is contaminated with volatile organic compounds (VOCs), heavy metals, and phenol. About 115 domestic water wells and two municipal wells are located within three miles of the site and serve approximately 4,000 people.
The Washington State Department of Ecology is the lead agency managing this site. For Information on environmental or regulatory concerns on this site, please contact John Roland at (509) 625-5182. firstname.lastname@example.org
