The Picatinny Arsenal is a munitions and weapons research and development installation covering 6,491 acres and containing 1,500 buildings in Morris County, near the city of Dover, New Jersey. Ground water contamination above State and Federal action levels has been detected in the vicinity of Building 24, where past wastewater treatment practices resulted in the infiltration of metal plating waste constituents (i.e., VOCs and heavy metals) into the ground water. Two unlined lagoons alongside Building 24, thought to be a source of contamination, was eliminated during a 1981 action during which the unlined lagoons were demolished, contaminated soil removed, and two concrete lagoons installed. Two additional potential sources of contamination are a dry well at Building 24 and a former drum storage area at Building 31, directly across the street from Building 24. The interim ground water cleanup remedy is designed to prevent deterioration to Green Pond Brook, a major drainage artery onsite, while the Arsenal a a whole is evaluated. The primary contaminants of concern affecting the ground water are VOCs including TCE and metals.
