Many landfill siting reports, of which those of the Franklin County, OH, landfill are typical, imply continuity of minor sand bodies in till between widely-spaced test holes where sand deposits fall within similar depth ranges. This review of studies of the local origin of most sand and gravel lenses or seams, and their transport in active glaciers, however, indicate that most such deposits probably have limited lateral continuity. Their role in the groundwater circulatory system is commonly exaggerated in landfill reports.
