It was a massive cleanup project in Bucks County, but now an old landfill is finally ready for whatever comes next.
18 years after becoming a Superfund site, the Watson Johnson Landfill off East Pumping Station Road in Richland Township is finally clean.
The landfill - used from the 1950's to the 70's - was contaminating the groundwater with Trichloroethylene, or TCE, known to cause a variety of health concerns.
The cleanup project, which was stalled for years, gained new steam back in 2017, when the EPA established the Superfund Task Force designed to speed up cleaning projects nationally.
The project cost around $14 million to repair and clean the 30-acre site.
For now there are no concrete plans on what to do with the property.
