SITE BACKGROUND

The Imperial Oil Co., Inc./Champion Chemicals (IOC/CC) site is located in Marlboro Township, New Jersey. The site includes a 15-acre plant and surrounding contaminated properties. From 1969 to 2007, Imperial Oil Company, Inc. operated an oil blending facility on site. Prior to this, other companies operated at the site, including a chemical processing plant that produced arsenical pesticides, followed by a manufacturer of flavors and essences. These operations resulted in the contamination of soils and groundwater with hazardous chemicals. Following immediate actions to protect human health and the environment, EPA put the site’s long-term remedy in place. Operation of the site’s treatment systems is ongoing.
