Superfund Site Profile
The Cosden Chemical Coatings Corp. site is located in Beverly, New Jersey. A paint formulation and manufacturing facility operated at the 6.7-acre site from 1945 until 1989, when it permanently closed. It produced coatings for industrial applications. Facility operations contaminated soil and groundwater with polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs), metals and volatile organic compounds (VOCs). VOCs are potentially harmful contaminants that can easily evaporate into the air. Following immediate cleanup actions to protect human health and the environment, the site’s long-term cleanup is ongoing.
