Cleanup on tap for Hudson County sites Company will remove chromium in Jersey City, Weehawken, Bayonne BY BRIAN T. MURRAY Star-Ledger (NJ) February 20, 2009New Jersey authorities and a Pittsburgh corporation blamed for chromium pollution throughout Hudson County reached an agreement yesterday for cleaning up a site in Jersey City within five years.
PPG Industries will remediate soil and other sources of chromium contamination on 16.6 acres on Garfield Avenue -- the site of a chromite ore refinement plant from 1924 to 1963 -- under a partial Superior Court settlement announced by the state attorney general and the Department of Environmental Protection. The deal will not be finalized until after a 30-day public comment period.
PPG also agreed to complete remediation operations at 13 other contaminated sites in Jersey City, Weehawken and Bayonne, pay $1 million to Jersey City for a park and pay another $250,000 to oversee the settlement plan.
