Magnetic Survey of Property in Mid-Michigan Revealed Presence of Landfills

As a result of environmental due-diligence conducted by Lakeshore Environmental, Inc. (LEI), a magnetic survey was performed in key areas of a mid-Michigan facility resulting in the identification of four landfills covering a total area of around one football field and to a depth of over 16 feet below the ground surface.

These historical landfills, also known as farm dumps, dated back to the early-1960’s and included household and industrial trash, scrap metal, and construction debris.  Without LEI’s effort, the purchaser would have been unaware of this material and the potential environmental ramifications of informal land-filling at that property.
