The Pepe Field site is a former disposal area in the town of Boonton, Morris County, New Jersey. From 1935 to 1950 the E.F. Drew Company used the site to dispose of wastes generated from processing vegetable oils and soap products. Materials reportedly deposited onsite by the E.F. Drew Company were diatomaceous earth and activated carbon filter residue; incinerator and boiler ash; boiler ash; lime sludge; and soap residue. Investigations revealed gas concentrations exceeding the lower explosive limit in the soil vapor at the perimeter of the site and in an apparent soil gas plume extending below the property adjacent to the site. The primary contaminants of concern affecting the soil found in the landfill include hydrogen sulfide and methane gases. The selected remedial action for this site includes maintaining the site cover; installing and maintaining a landfill gas collection and treatment system using carbon adsorption; disposing of carbon offsite; upgrading and maintaining the existing leachage collection and treatment system; and ground water monitoring.
