Over the years, the Army filled in the ravines with waste generated by military operations. The most toxic waste was placed in the Wells Ravine, also known as Landfill 7. Regulatory oversight did not begin until when the State of Illinois commenced litigation.

An operating permit was issued two months after the landfill ceased operations. By , the cap had failed due to ponding of water and the failure of the leachate collection system to collect leachate. The Army stated that the cap failure was caused by failure to maintain the cap. The Army began evaluating the permanent closure of Landfill 7 and the inherent problems with its maintenance. Because Landfill 7 had been dispensing 14, gallons of leachate per day into Lake Michigan, and the leachate was above state environmental effluent standards, CERCLA allowed the Army to implement an interim remedy prior to deciding on a permanent remedy.
The Army responded that the cap was an interim solution that was thought to be effective for temporary containment of the waste. After the interim containment remedy was selected on April 22, ,  the Army brought in Dr. Shabica to evaluate the shore protections as part of the design phase. On December 2, , he informed the Army that the cap, as designed, would fail due to erosion. The Army responded by purchasing a new system designed by Dr.
Shabica's company. The decision to cap Landfill 7 as the final remedy conflicts with some of the recommendations of the geological community. Opponents claim the Analysis of Alternatives found in the remedial investigation, remedial action, and feasibility study was skewed in favor of the Army's preferred remedy which was less expensive.
