216 PATERSON PLANK RD
The Scientific Chemical Processing site includes the 6-acre former Scientific Chemcial Processing Company property plus contaminated groundwater in the vicinity of this property. It is located in a light industrial area of Carlstadt. The property was used as a waste processing facility that accepted various wastes for recovery and disposal. About 375,000 gallons of hazardous substances were stored on site in tanks, drums, and tank trailers. The facility shut down operations in 1980 in response to a court order. Some company officials received fines and jail terms for illegally dumping hazardous waste. From 1979 to 1980, drums and contaminated soil were removed. The property is now vacant. A final remedy for the on-property soil and shallow groundwater, which prevents direct contact with contaminated soil and controls off-property migration of contamination from on-site soils and shallow groundwater, is in place. A proposed plan to address contaminated deep and off-property groundwater was issued in August 2012. The site is located within a coastal wetlands management area, bordered on the northeast by Peach Island Creek, a tidal waterway. Local surface water is used for recreation and industrial water supplies. There is a residential area located approximately 1.2 miles northwest of the site. All nearby businesses and residences are believed to be on public water supplies. Site Responsibility: This site is being addressed through a combination of Federal, State, and potentially responsible parties' actions.
