EPA Superfund Program: WHITE CHEMICAL CORP., NEWARK, NJ

Superfund Site Profile

The White Chemical Corporation site is located in Newark, New Jersey. A facility manufactured acid chlorides and flame retardant compounds at the 4.4-acre property. 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). After site investigations, immediate actions and a soil removal action were taken to protect human health and the environment.  A Remedial Design is nearing completion so that EPA can implement a groundwater remedy, the last operable unit that remains for the White Chemical Superfund Site (Site).
