EPA Notice of 2nd 5-Year Review Post-Clean-upsPosted on July 13, 2016
EPA TO PERFORM 2ND 5-YEAR REVIEW OF CLEAN-UPS AT MONTGOMERY TWP. & ROCKY HILL SUPERFUND SITES
The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is conducting its 2nd Five-Year Review of the Montgomery Township Housing Development and Rocky Hill Municipal Well Superfund Siteslocated in Somerset County, New Jersey. This review seeks to confirm that the cleanup conducted at the site, which included: 1. connecting affected residents to the public water supply; 2. sealing of private water supply and monitoring wells within the contaminant plume; and 3. pumping and treating of contaminated groundwater continues to ensure the effectiveness of the remedy continues to be protective of public health and the environment and is functioning as designed.
What is an EPA Five Year Review?
EPA inspects Superfund sites every five years to ensure that cleanups conducted remain fully protective of human health and the environment. These regular reviews, which are required by federal law when contaminants remain at a site, include:
▪ Inspection of the site and cleanup technologies;
▪ Review of monitoring data, operating data, and maintenance records, and
▪ Determination if any new regulatory requirements have been established since EPA’s original cleanup decision was finalized.
The five-year review is expected to be completed in 2016 and the results will be available at the local site repository listed below.
