EPA Finalizes Linden Cleanup Plan (USA)

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency has finalized its plan to address contaminated soil and ground water at the LCP Chemicals, Inc. Superfund site in Linden, New Jersey.

The soil, ground water and sediment from a stream on the site were contaminated with mercury and other pollutants from previous industrial activities. The 26-acre LCP Chemicals, Inc. site is located in an industrial area on the Tremley Point peninsula next to the Arthur Kill in Linden. The land, originally a coastal marshland, was filled in and developed for industrial use.

The most highly contaminated sediment will be dug up and moved upstream where it will be capped. The excavated area and a nearby ditch will be restored with clean sediment and the wetlands will be reconstructed.

Contaminated ground water from the site will be extracted and treated. A barrier will also be put in place to further limit the potential for contaminated ground water to spread. The ground water will be monitored and deed restrictions will be put in place to restrict its use and other activities that could disturb the cleanup.

Future on-site construction will be restricted to commercial use.
