Extent of available data.
This data layer identifies Waste Footprints in the Minnesota Pollution Control Agency's (MPCA) Closed Landfill Program. It was developed by the MPCA. The Closed Landfill Program works to properly close, monitor, and maintain Minnesota's closed municipal sanitary landfills. The Waste Footprint is the boundary of all known waste deposits. Landfills can remain a threat to both the surface and subsurface environment long after they are closed. Any activities in the vicinity of a closed landfill need to account for this risk.
