Federal Creosote Superfund Site

Location: Manville, NJ

Project Background
The Federal Creosoting Company began using the property in 1919 to treat railroad ties and poles with creosote wood preservative. During its operation, the site included several buildings used in the creosoting process and multiple above-ground tanks that contained creosote. Creosote was discharged through two canals into two unlined creosote waste lagoons. In the center of the site, lumber treated with creosote would be left to drip onto surface soil. When operations at the site ceased in 1956, the 50-acre property was purchased by developers and single family homes were built on 35 acres of the site. The remaining 15 acres were developed into a mall. The redeveloped property was built on top of the contaminated soil and the waste lagoons. The EPA and the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, which was brought in for its engineering expertise, began cleanup in spring 2001.

Scope of Earthwatch Service
Provided transportation and disposal services for 150,000 tons of hazardous waste and more than 60,000 tons of non-hazardous material included creosote contaminated soil over a five year period.
