From approximately 1972 to 1985, this 12.5-acre facility operated to recondition 55-gallon drums that contained various types of residual wastes. Waste from the operations at the site consisted of ash and slag from the incinerator processes. Residual and caustic wastes were generated from the rinse processes to clean the drums. In addition, the NJDEP historical documents indicated that hundreds of drums containing paints, resins, ash, waste oil, and unknown contents were located throughout the site.
The investigations were streamlined through the use of real-time investigation tools such as MIP and groundwater profiling techniques. Through these techniques, Kleinfelder was able to quickly characterize the 12.5-acre property and identify key zones at depth that contained contaminants of concern migrating beneath the site.
