Extent of available data.
This data layer identifies Land Management Areas 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 Land Management Area includes any lands described in the Landfill Cleanup Agreement, any MPCA property, all waste areas, and possibly adjacent lands. 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.
