The 9-acre Witco Chemical (Oakland Plant) site, a former technical research facility for the development of specialty chemicals, is located in Oakland, Bergen County, New Jersey. From 1966 to 1984, the Witco Chemical Corporation (Witco) neutralized laboratory wastewater in a 2,000-gallon underground acid neutralizing tank, and then discharged it to a series of underground seepage pits. In In response to state directives, Witco initiated a hydrogeological investigation in 1982 and determined that site soil, sludge, and ground water contained various organic compounds. Witco then replaced its underground seepage pit with a 6,000-gallon capacity fiberglass tank. The ROD addresses any remaining soil and ground water contamination resulting from site activities. Based on the results of remedial investigations, the removal of the seepage pits and surrounding soil by Witco during 1987 has effectively remediated the contamination at the site. The selected remedial action for the site is no further action, with implementation of limited ground water monitoring.
