The 7,400-acre Naval Air Engineering Center (NAEC) site is an active air base in Jackson and Manchester Townships, Ocean County, New Jersey. Activities conducted onsite include program research, engineering, development testing and evaluation, and various warfare support services. In 1921, the U.S. Navy took control of the site and conducted operations involving the use, handling, storage, and onsite disposal of hazardous substances in various onsite buildings. Preliminary investigations in 1983 by the U.S. Navy identified 44 onsite areas of possible soil and ground water contamination, and determined that the primary sources were leaky valves and pipes, dispensing pumps, the underground fuel oil tanks, overflowing dry wells, and other accidental onsite chemical spills and releases. The Record of Decision (ROD) provides an interim remedy for contaminated soil and ground water in Area C. The primary contaminants of concern affecting the ground water are VOCs including benzene, TCE, and xylenes; other organics including PAHs; and metals including arsenic and lead. The selected remedial action for the site is included.
