PIGEON POINT LANDFILL
The DSWA operated Pigeon Point Landfill from January 1, 1981 until its closure in October of 1985. The landfill is at the site of a former dredge spoil disposal area. Landfill areas are underlain by a varying 10 to 15 foot thickness of the dredge spoil and 5 to 45 foot thickness of alluvial deposits, both of which consist mainly of fine silts exhibiting low permeability. The total thickness of the refuse deposits varies from 40 to 60 feet.
