I'm interested in purchasing some land in the Hillview estate at Louth Park, NSW. The purchase would be for my kids, wife and I as a forever home. I've noticed there is a landfill (Mt Vincent Road Waste management Centre) 2.7km away. The land is West, WSW of the landfill. Upon seeing the wind avg. of the last five years (Louth Park Wind Forecast, NSW 2320 - WillyWeather) it seems approx 12% of the time, wind blows from the direction of the landfill to Hillview. After reading Morbidity and mortality of people who live close to municipal waste landfills: a multisite cohort study its made me doubt purchasing the land. I understand Italy's landfill areas would be a different standard to here in Australia but still makes you think about possible consequences. What do you think would be a safe living distance from a landfill? What is everyone's thoughts? What would you do? Thanks in advance for any replies.
