CINNAMINSON, NJ - The federal Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is working on cleaning up a superfund site in which several contaminants were discovered in the early 1980s. The EPA is currently working on the cleanup of a superfund site that covers about 400 acres of land in Cinnaminson and Delran, according to the EPA’s website. 

The cleanup focuses on properties bounded by Union Landing Road, U.S. Route 130, River Road, and Taylors Lane, as well as “properties outside these boundaries where contaminants may have migrated or threaten to migrate.”

Groundwater contamination was discovered by NJDEP through the review of groundwater monitoring data collected as part of the closure plan for the landfills in the early 1980s, according to the EPA. Contaminants including vinyl chloride, 1, 2- dichloroethane, PCE, TCE, cis-1, 2-dichloroethene (cis-1, 2-DCE), benzene and arsenic were found in the groundwater, soil and soil vapor.
