EPA Superfund Program: SOUTH JERSEY CLOTHING CO., MINOTOLA, NJ

Superfund Site Profile

The South Jersey Clothing Company (SJCC) site is located in Buena Borough, New Jersey.  SJCC once made military uniforms. As part of the manufacturing process, assembled garments were treated by a dry-cleaning unit that used trichloroethylene (TCE). These operations generated TCE-contaminated wastewaters and sludges that were routinely discharged onto the ground behind the process building and along the adjacent railroad tracks. In addition, a fire in 1979 may have released an estimated 275 gallons of TCE from a storage tank on site. Cleanup of contaminated soil has finished. Groundwater treatment and monitoring are ongoing.
