Abstract:  THE LIPARI LANDFILL OCCUPIES APPROXIMATELY SIX ACRES IN THE TOWNSHIP OF MANTUA, GLOUCESTER COUNTY, NEW JERSEY. BETWEEN 1958 AND 1971, THE LANDFILL HAS BEEN USED FOR THE DISPOSAL OF HOUSEHOLD WASTE, LIQUID AND SEMI-SOLID CHEMICAL WASTES, AND OTHER INDUSTRIAL MATERIALS. BEST ESTIMATES INDICATE THAT APPROXIMATELY 3 MILLION GALLONS OF LIQUID WASTES HAVE BEEN DISPOSED AT THE SITE. GROUND WATER AND SURFACE WATER CONTAMINATION HAS BEEN THE PRIMARY CONCERN AT THE SITE.

THE SELECTED COST-EFFECTIVE ALTERNATIVE INVOLVES A 360 DEGREE CUTOFF WALL WITH A CAP OVER A 16-ACRE AREA DURING THE FIRST OPERABLE UNIT; THE SECOND OPERABLE UNIT WILL INVOLVE INSTALLATION OF GROUND WATER COLLECTION WELLS AND TREATMENT OF THE GROUND WATER WITHIN THE SLURRY WALL. THE TOTAL COST FOR DESIGN AND IMPLEMENTATION OF THE CUTOFF WALL AND CAP IN ADDITION TO FURTHER EVALUATION RELATED TO THE COLLECTION AND TREATMENT OF LEACHATE IS ESTIMATED TO BE $1,769,150.
 
Remedy:  - PHASE I: EMPLACEMENT OF A 360 DEGREE CUTOFF WALL WITH CAP OVER 16 ACRES (ENCLOSED AREA WOULD INCLUDE THE SIX ACRE LANDFILL AND THE 10 ACRE CONTAMINATED AREA BETWEEN THE LANDFILL AND CHESTNUT BRANCH).
- PHASE II: INSTALLATION OF GROUND WATER COLLECTION WELLS (LOCATED BOTH WITHIN THE CONTAMINATED ZONE AND WASTE BODY ITSELF) TREATMENT OF THE GROUND WATER CONTAINED WITHIN THE SLURRY WALL.
