Town of Grafton’s Denow Landfill Water Contamination has Lasting Impact
Published on January 8, 2013 – Conley Publishing Group
Decades worth of legal action over the contamination of Ozaukee County’s groundwater still hasn’t reached settlement, according to town of Grafton officials who, for the past four years, have been meeting in closed session discussions as recently as last month.
The contamination is the result of claimed illegal dumping of toxic materials at the Denow landfill, which operated on Cedar Sauk Road from 1970 until 1989 in the town of Grafton.
Currently, the town is in negotiations with a third party, who is allegedly responsible for part of the illegal dumping.
