In The Region:

Owners of a closed landfill in Stark County have been ordered hand over $15,000 and the oil, gas and mineral rights to the property to help cover the costs of cleaning it up.

Mike Settles of the Ohio EPA says his agency and the Stark County Health Department have had trouble with Exit C&D Landfill since it was closed in 2002 by owners Barbara and Timothy Williams of Navarre.

"There have been fires out there over the years," Settles says. "We’ve also had what is our current concern and that is quite a bit of liquid building up within the landfill. We call that liquid leachate. And we, Ohio EPA and the Stark County Health Department, have both spent a considerable amount of time and expense ensuring that that landfill is environmentally sound."

The county and state have spent nearly $750,000 on the landfill. Settles says most recently, the EPA drilled wells to gather data on the leachate and see whether it might have any effect on groundwater.

Kate Hanson of the Ohio Attorney General’s office says it can not predict how much money will come from the mineral rights.
