WEAR Project

The Solid Waste Program is conducting a 4 year Waste Erosion Assessment and Review (WEAR) project to inventory and prioritize landfills, contaminated sites, tank farms, and other sites of environmental concern based on their erosion and contaminant risk. Preliminary reports for the communities visited are complete and available online. The Final Report will be out in May 2015. See the links below for more information or click on the map to see sites visited by the WEAR project.
