EPA Superfund Program: TABERNACLE DRUM DUMP, TABERNACLE TOWNSHIP, NJ

Superfund Site Profile

The Tabernacle Drum Dump site is located in Tabernacle Township, New Jersey. The site is a wooded 1-acre parcel of undeveloped land. In a one-time dumping incident in the summer of 1976 or 1977, about 200 containers (55-gallon drums, 20-gallon containers and several 5-gallon pails) of solvents, paint and paint sludges were dumped on a 2,000-square-foot area of the property. Sampling identified the presence of carbon tetrachloride, benzene, toluene, ethylbenzene, xylenes, chromium and lead. Deterioration and leakage of some containers resulted in visible soil contamination. The drums and contaminated soil were removed in 1984. After the site’s cleanup, EPA took it off the Superfund program’s National Priorities List in May 2008.
