Subject: Landfills
In response to the queries on assessing and cleaning up old landfills:

I must have discarded some old documents on the subject, but I believe
several years ago the state of California conducted a fairly
comprehensive survey of contamination at municipal solid waste disposal
landfills. I don't remember, however, if it covered long-abandoned

In California, landfills - unless part of a larger regulated unit, such
as a military base - are now regulated by the Integrated Waste
Management Board, a branch of Cal-EPA, rather than the Water Boards or
the Department of Toxic Substances Control. The is the agency with the
expertise, and probably with the best information.
