Superfund Site Profile


SITE BACKGROUND

The Zschiegner Refining Company (ZRC) site is located in Howell Township, New Jersey. The site is a 6.1-acre former metals refining facility. On-site operations included the chemical stripping of precious metals from watchbands, film and electrical components. Facility operations contaminated soil, sediments, groundwater and a building. After initial actions to protect human health and the environment, EPA put the site’s long-term remedy in place. Cleanup of the site was completed in 2008, and post-construction groundwater and wetland restoration monitoring is ongoing.
