Superfund Site: COOPER ROAD

Superfund Site Profile


The Cooper Road site covers an area of less than 100 square feet in Voorhees Township, New Jersey. The site is an old borrow pit that had been excavated for fill material. In 1982, several dozen one- to two-ounce glass vials containing volatile organic compounds (VOCs) were discovered on the site. Some of the vials were broken; most were intact. After cleanup of the vials and contaminated soil, follow-up sampling found no significant levels of any contaminants in the soils or groundwater. EPA determined that the site no longer posed a threat to human health or the environment and removed it from the Superfund program’s National Priorities List in February 1989.
