Background

The Garden State Cleaners (GSC) site is located in Buena Borough, New Jersey. A dry cleaning facility was located on site. Facility operations contaminated soil and groundwater with volatile organic compounds (VOCs), which are potentially harmful contaminants. The South Jersey Clothing Company (SJCC) Superfund site is located north of the GSC site. EPA combined its cleanup and monitoring of the sites due to similar contamination and their close proximity. Cleanup of contaminated soil at the GSC site finished in 1995. A groundwater treatment system for both sites has been operating since 1999.
