EPA eyes Superfund removal of New Jersey landfill site

Contaminants originally found in the 10-acre site’s surface soil included sediments like fly ash and fine particles of ash from a solid fuel caused by waste gases from manufacturing

After a decade on the U.S. Superfund list, the EPA says it’s time to remove the Crown Vantage Landfill Site in Alexandria Township, N.J., once an industrial landfill that served a nearby paper mill.

Contaminants originally found in the 10-acre site’s surface soil included  sediments like fly ash and fine particles of ash from a solid fuel caused by waste gases from manufacturing.

In April 2007, EPA developed a Work Plan to address specific activities, including stabilizing the entire face of the landfill to prevent erosion; securing the site against unauthorized access; and identifying, retrieving, and removing any containers and their contents above ground to prevent direct contact with these materials. These activities were completed by September 2007.
