The Goose Farm site is located in Plumsted Township, New Jersey. A manufacturer of polysulfide rubber and solid rocket fuel propellant disposed of solid and liquid hazardous wastes at the 6.6-acre area from the mid-1940s to the mid-1970s. The majority of wastes were dumped into a pit dug through fine sand. Waste chemicals from laboratories, drums and bulk liquids were dumped into the pit, contaminating soil and groundwater with hazardous chemicals. Soil cleanup has been completed. Long-term groundwater treatment is ongoing. Under current conditions at the site, potential or actual human exposures are under control.
