SITE BACKGROUND

The Chemsol, Inc. site is a 40-acre tract of land in Piscataway, New Jersey. Chemsol operated a solvent recovery and waste reprocessing facility there from the 1950s through about 1964. Numerous accidents, fires and explosions resulted in soil, groundwater and air contamination. Following several short-term cleanups to protect human health and the environment, the site’s long-term cleanup is ongoing.
