Background

The Hopkins Farm site is located in Plumsted Township, New Jersey. Chemical wastes were disposed of on a small portion of the 57-acre area during the late 1950s and early 1960s, contaminating soil and groundwater with hazardous chemicals. The site is one of seven similar hazardous waste sites in the vicinity of Plumsted Township. Following cleanup, the site no longer poses a threat to human health or the environment. EPA took the site off the Superfund program’s National Priorities List in June 2002. Long-term groundwater monitoring is ongoing.
