The DeRewal Chemical Company site is located in Kingwood Township, New Jersey. From 1970 to 1973, the DeRewal Chemical Company used the 3.7-acre site for the storage of chemicals. Chemicals handled included a range of metals, acid solutions and fertilizer nutrients and associated compounds. Numerous chemical spills were reported in 1973, including one incident in which the contents of a tank truck containing an acidic chromium solution were allowed to drain onto the soil. The DeRewal Chemical Company ceased operations at the site around 1974. Soil cleanup has been completed. Groundwater cleanup is ongoing.
