Superfund Site Profile


SITE BACKGROUND

The Waldick Aerospace Devices site is located in Wall Township, New Jersey.  The 1.72-acre area is an inactive industrial facility.  The property was used for manufacturing and plating metal parts for the aerospace industry.  In 1982, state and county inspectors found that wastewater and used machine oil was being discharged directly onto the ground.  Samples revealed that the wastes contained heavy metals, acids and volatile organic compounds (VOCs), which are potentially harmful contaminants that can easily evaporate into the air.  On-site soil, groundwater and two buildings were contaminated.  Following immediate actions to protect human health and the environment, EPA put the site’s long-term remedy in place.  Groundwater monitoring is ongoing.
