Superfund Site: WHITE CHEMICAL CORP.
Superfund Site Profile
The White Chemical Corporation site is a 4.4-acre vacant lot located at 660 Frelinghuysen Avenue in Newark, New Jersey. Historic industrial activities at the site included the manufacturing of a variety of acid chlorides and fire retardant compounds. The White Chemical Corporation (WCC) operated the facility from 1983 until July 1990. Facility violations led to numerous citations from the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protect (NJDEP), and the mishandling of chemicals led to their release and contamination of the soil and groundwater at the site. After site investigations, immediate removal actions were taken to protect human health and the environment. The Remedial Design for the groundwater cleanup, the last operable unit that remains for the Site, was completed in Septemeber of 2016. The Site is currently awaiting funding to implent the groundwater remedy.
