SITE BACKGROUND

The Emmell's Septic Landfill site is located in Galloway Township, New Jersey. From 1967 to 1979, the 38-acre area was used for disposal of septic wastes and sewage sludge. Other wastes included chemical wastes, drums of paint sludge, gas cylinders, household garbage and construction debris. Disposal activities left hazardous materials in buried drums on site and contaminated soil and groundwater. Following immediate actions to protect human health and the environment, the site’s long-term remedy was put in place. Groundwater treatment is ongoing.
