A near-century of remediation: Public works haunted by old Grant County landfill

The old Grant County landfill, a chunk of land directly adjacent to the active one and otherwise indistinguishable from the hillside, has been closed to the public since 1974. Much like the active landfill at 3803 Neva Lake Road NW, in Ephrata, the old site requires daily maintenance.
