Superfund Site Profile
The Kauffman & Minteer, Inc. site is located in Jobstown, New Jersey. K&M, Inc. operated an industrial transportation facility on the 5-acre area. From 1960 to 1981, the company discharged wastewater used to clean the inside of its trucks into a drainage ditch and an unlined lagoon. The wastewater contained hazardous substances. In 1984, a dike that surrounded the lagoon broke, allowing wastewater to migrate off site to a neighboring property and into wetlands. Discharges from the lagoon and the washing areas contaminated shallow groundwater beneath the site and threaten the Wenonah-Mount Laurel (intermediate) Aquifer, a major source of potable water near the site. Following initial actions to protect human health and the environment, EPA put the site’s long-term remedy in place. Long-term groundwater cleanup and monitoring is ongoing.
