DuPont to explore cleanup options Will test diluting plume of pollution By JAMES M. O'NEILL Bergen Record April 19, 2014Nearly 30 years after discovering that toxic chemicals migrated off its property and contaminated groundwater beneath 450 homes in Pompton Lakes, DuPont is readying two new tests to study possible methods to remove the pollution. A previous study of a third cleanup option has already produced positive results.
One of DuPont's new tests will determine whether it can dilute or flush out the contaminated groundwater plume beneath the residential neighborhood in a controversial process called hydraulic surcharging.
The company wants to try that approach because an effort to clean groundwater on DuPont's own property, the site of a former munitions factory, and then pump it back into the ground has also reduced pollution in part of the plume where the cleaned water reenters the ground. But some residents are concerned that discharging the cleaned water over a broader area underneath the houses would cause the water table to rise, leading to flooded in basements.
