The Asbestos Dump site is composed of four asbestos disposal areas in Meyersville, Passaic Township, New Jersey. The Record of Decision (ROD) addresses two of the four properties: the 30-acre New Vernon Road site and the 12-acre White Bridge Road site. In a 1990 investigation, EPA identified high levels of asbestos contamination in soil at both properties. Based on this investigation, the Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry (ATSDR) issued a Public Health Advisory, and EPA conducted an immediate removal action at both sites. The ROD addresses the asbestos-contaminated soil on both the New Vernon Road and White Bridge Road properties, as Operable Unit (OU)2. A subsequent ROD will address the fourth property, the Dietzman Tract, as OU3. The primary contaminant of concern affecting the soil is asbestos, an inorganic. The selected remedial action for this site is included.
