SITE BACKGROUND

The Bog Creek Farm site is located in Monmouth, New Jersey. A disposal area at the 12-acre area contained a pond, bog and trench. Between 1973 and 1974, organic solvents and paint residues were dumped there, contaminating soil, sediment, surface water and groundwater with volatile organic compounds (VOCs) and heavy metals. VOCs are potentially harmful contaminants that easily evaporate in the air. To date, cleanup has included the removal of disposal pit wastes and disposal and incineration of contaminated soils and sediment. Groundwater treatment is ongoing.
