The 15.3-acre Metaltec/Aerosystems site is a former metal products manufacturing operation in the Borough of Franklin, Sussex County, New Jersey. A marshy wetlands area is southeast of the site, and surrounding land use is primarily semi-rural residential. The Metaltec plant was operated from 1965 to 1980 and the area surrounding the plant included a process well, a wastewater lagoon, a drum storage area, soil saturated with wastewater, and two piles of waste material. In 1980, the State detected VOCs in the wastewater lagoon, surrounding soil, and in onsite ground water. In 1981, the State ordered Metaltec/Aerosystems to remove waste material from the wastewater lagoon, and in 1982 the lagoon was partially excavated and filled. The ROD addresses final ground water remediation at the site. The primary contaminants of concern affecting the ground water are VOCs including PCE, TCE, toluene, and xylenes; and metals including chromium and lead.
