SITE BACKGROUND

The Swope Oil & Chemical Company site is located in Pennsauken Township, New Jersey. The Swope Oil & Chemical Company operated a chemical reclamation facility at the 2-acre area from 1965 until late 1979. During that time, the facility processed solvents, oil, paints and other chemical compounds. Waste disposal operations contaminated groundwater and soil with hazardous chemicals. Site cleanup and monitoring are ongoing.
