Abstract

The Doty Landfill encompasses 13 acres of land and is located in the southeastern quarter of Section 29, Township 81 North, Range 6 East, Clinton County, Iowa. The site was used as a landfill for municipal solid waste from 1970 to 1975. In addition, local residents have expressed concern that other chemical-or pesticide waste had been disposed at the site. Previous site investigations had been completed in 1992 and in 2005. In October 2007 water samples from private wells located in the vicinity of the Doty Landfill site were collected and analyzed for dissolved metals. Two of the water samples obtained from drinking water wells contained dissolved arsenic above the US EPA Maximum Contaminant Level (MCL) for arsenic of 10 μg/L (micrograms per liter) or 10 ppb (parts per billion). The water samples in question contained dissolved arsenic at concentrations of 19.3 and 14.9 μg/L or 19.3 and 14.9 ppb.
