EPA Superfund Program: LIGHTMAN DRUM COMPANY, WINSLOW TOWNSHIP, NJ

Superfund Site Profile

The Lightman Drum Company (LDC) site is located in Berlin, New Jersey. The 15-acre area includes a former industrial waste hauling and drum reclamation business and associated groundwater contaminant plumes. LDC stored chemical residues in underground storage tanks, drums and trailers. Drums were emptied in a pit at the rear of the property. Facility operations contaminated soil and groundwater with hazardous chemicals. Following a short-term removal action cleanup to protect human health and the environment, the site’s long-term cleanup is ongoing.
