JOINT BASE MCGUIRE-DIX-LAKEHURST, N.J. - Nearly 83,000 tons of contaminated earth were safely removed from the Caven Point U.S. Army Reserve complex in Jersey City as part of the largest soil-removal project in Army Reserve history.

This record-setting, $7 million remediation effort began in the summer of 2009 and is now in its final phase of quarterly groundwater monitoring.

"Since the source (of contamination) has been removed, we expect ground water to return to a healthy condition in a few years," explained Laura Dell’Olio, a contractor with Innovar Environmental Inc. who serves as Installation Restoration Program coordinator for the Army Reserve’s 99th Regional Support Command.
