Like everything else, it depends. Zoom onto the golf course on this map:http://goo.gl/maps/Kj1E2That's an old landfill and it didn't become a golf course until the 1990s. Some of the toniest addresses in Seattle are much less than a mile from it. The question is if the landfill is likely to impact your house in some way. Just for calibration, the EPA all appropriate inquiry rule for due diligence purposes excludes landfills if they are greater than 1/2 mile away.http://www.epa.gov/brownfields/aai/In other words, landfills greater than 1/2 mile are assumed to be unlikely impact your site, just based on distance. That's for hazardous materials, you still have olfactory, visual, and maybe traffic impacts. But those are easy to evaluate. Knock on some your prospective neighbor's doors and ask them if they ever smell the landfill.
