EPA Superfund Program: KRYSOWATY FARM, HILLSBOROUGH TOWNSHIP, NJ

Superfund Site Profile

The Krysowaty Farm site is located in Hillsborough Township, New Jersey. The 1-acre site was a waste disposal area where about 500 drums of paint and dye wastes were dumped, crushed and buried from 1965 to 1970. Other wastes, including demolition debris, tires, automobiles, bulk wastes, solvents and waste sludge were also disposed of at the farm. Local residents became concerned when they smelled odors in their well water. The New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection (NJDEP) investigated the site in 1979 and found volatile organic compounds (VOCs) in the groundwater. Hillsborough Township provided bottled water to nearby residents in 1982. Following site cleanup in 1985 and 1986, EPA took the site off the Superfund Program’s National Priorities List in 1989.
