The Renora Inc. site, in Middlesex County, New Jersey, occupies a one-acre parcel of land in an area zoned for light industrial use. Within 2,000 feet of the site is a residential area with a nursery school, a senior citizens center and an apartment complex. The site consists of relatively flat land built up from a 100-year flood plain with three to twelve feet of demolition debris. From 1978 to 1982 Renora, Inc., certified as a collector/hauler of waste oils, transported and accepted materials containing hazardous substances for transfer, storage, blending and ultimately, disposal through abandonment at the site. State and local inspection reports indicate that the site was poorly maintained throughout the period of its operation. In July 1978 the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection (NJDEP) detected several minor spills and determined that Renora, Inc. was acting as a Special Waste Transfer Station without proper registration. Subsequently Renora was ordered to remove all contaminated soil and drums. In May 1979 drums were leaking on the property.
