Background

The Fried Industries site is a 26-acre area located in the northwest corner of East Brunswick Township near the border of the Borough of Milltown in Middlesex County, New Jersey. For 25 years, Fried Industries operated the site and manufactured floor finishing products, aqueous detergent solutions, adhesives and algaecides in its building complex and manufacturing areas. The company also produced chemical products from components such as toluene and 1,1,1-trichloroethane. At times, site facilities were leased to other companies for the manufacture of automotive antifreeze products. The site includes a pond, a marsh area and several separate wetlands areas.  Approximately 43,000 people live in the Township of East Brunswick and about 7,000 people live in the Borough of Milltown.
