Report: No health risks near NBTHS
Residents say assessment is not sufficient regarding effects of 

North Brunswick Sentinel (NJ)
February 7, 2008

There is "no apparent public health risk" at the North Brunswick 
Township High School and its surrounding areas associated with the soil 
contamination found in 2003, according to a preliminary public health 

Last Thursday, township officials and representatives from the New 
Jersey State Department of Health and Senior Services and the U.S. 
Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry held a meeting to 
discuss the remediation project that resulted from the expansion of the 
high school in 2003. The primary concern for the school, Veterans Park, 
Judd Elementary School, a PSE&G easement and six nearby residences was 
arsenic in surface soil, lead in settled dust and tetrachloroethylene 
(TCE) in groundwater.

In July 2003, waste material consisting of pharmaceutical and laboratory 
wastes, glass vials, bottles and an unidentified dark brown material 
were uncovered near and within the Oval area of the high school, which 
is where the current auditorium sits.
