Superfund Site: MYERS PROPERTY

Superfund Site Profile


The Myers Property site is located in Franklin Township, New Jersey. The site includes about five acres of land currently owned by Arkema Inc. (Arkema), a potentially responsible party (PRP) for the site, and about two acres of wetlands owned by the State of New Jersey. In the 1940s, several companies manufactured pesticides at the eight-acre site. Elf Atochem, now Arkema, purchased the site property in 1993. Following initial actions to protect human health and the environment, the site’s long-term remedy was put in place. Groundwater treatment and monitoring is ongoing.
