The 2-acre Mannheim Avenue Dump site is a former municipally-owned industrial waste landfill in Galloway Township, Atlantic County, New Jersey. Surrounding land use is rural residential, and many residents and facilities in the area use ground water as their drinking water supply. Beginning in 1964, drummed industrial wastes, including TCE degreasing sludge, leaded porcelain fragments, and municipal waste, were buried onsite in 35 waste mounds. In 1982, a State survey indicated the presence of many unburied and leaking drums onsite. Sampling from 1985 to 1986, revealed ground water contamination onsite. In 1989, 35 mounds of contaminated soil were disposed of offsite. The Record of Decision (ROD) addresses ground water contamination at the site. The primary contaminants of concern affecting the ground water are VOCs including benzene and TCE.
