Also, Stark County Health Commissioner Bill Franks told the board that he didn’t believe that liquid waste from American Landfill was contaminating the local water supply. Last month, the district released a report from its consultant who had concluded that liquid waste had contaminated at least four residential wells. Franks said exceedances of fluoride, sulfate, dissolved solids and manganese, which were found in those home’s wells, are often not found in liquid waste and weren’t detected in monitoring wells around American. He said some of the residential wells were upstream from the landfill and that the exceedances likely came from coal mining or oil and gas drilling.
