The Pijak Farm is located approximately two miles northeast of the Town of New Egypt in Plumsted Township, Ocean County, New Jersey. The site is approximately 87 acres and is relatively flat with portions that drop off into a marshy, wooded flood plain. Between 1963 and 1970, drums and free-flowing liquids from a facility disposing of specialty and research chemicals were dumped into a natural ditch which traversed the site and were later covered with soil. The deteriorated remains of drums are visible along the edge of the flood plain. Contaminants found at the site include: halogenated hydrocarbons, PCBs, phenolic compounds and oil sludges. The principle contaminants found onsite are not priority pollutants. The cost-effective remedial alternative selected for this site includes: removal and off-site disposal of all drums and lab packs to a RCRA facility; excavation and off-site disposal of visibly contaminated soil to a RCRA facility; pumping and removal of contaminated ground water, as necessary, during excavation; monitoring on-site wells, annually, for a five year period and sediment control during excavation and sampling efforts. The capital cost for the selected alternative is estimated to be $1,962,750 and the five-year O&M ground water monitoring costs are estimated to be $53,600.
