The 17.5-acre Nascolite site is an inactive acrylic and plexiglass sheet manufacturing plant in Millville, Cumberland County, New Jersey. The site lies within the New Jersey coastal plain and overlies clay, silt, sand, and gravel layers. The majority of the site is wooded, with a wetland located in the southwestern portion. In 1980, although the State ordered the plant to stop discharging wastewaters into the onsite drainage ditch, well water monitoring conducted during 1981 identified VOC-contamination in these wells. In 1984, the State identified over one hundred 55-gallon drums and several underground storage tanks buried onsite. In 1987, the State ordered Nascolite to remove some of the drums, and later during 1987 and 1988, EPA removed the remaining drums offsite. The ROD addresses contaminated onsite soil, sediment, and buildings. The primary contaminant of concern affecting the soil, sediment, and debris is the inorganic contaminant lead; and VOCs including benzene, PCE, TCE, toluene, and xylenes. The selected remedial action for the site is included.
