The D'Imperio Property site is an inactive waste disposal dump located in a semi-rural region of Atlantic County within the New Jersey Pinelands Reserve. The site is relatively flat with slopes ranging from one to three percent. Two wetlands are located to the north and south of the site, approximately 2000 and 4000 feet away respectively. The site lies in a cleared area with wastes deposited randomly on the surface and some wastes partially buried. The exact period of disposal activities at the D'Imperio site is unknown. However, it is believed that unauthorized dumping took place from the late 1960's to 1976. A limited field investigation was conducted in the fall of 1980 which indicated that the ground water underlying the site was contaminated with volatile organics. The site was subsequently included on the EPA Interim Priorities List. The selected remedial alternative for the D'Imperio site includes excavation and transportation of 3900 cubic yards of contaminated waste and soil and surface drums to a RCRA-regulated disposal site; construction of a RCRA cap following completion of the excavation; and pumping and treating contaminated ground water from two affected aquifers prior to reinjection or surface discharge. The treatment process is estimated to take 17 months and will provide for the removal of both organic and inorganic contaminants. After 17 months an evaluation will be made to determine the effectiveness.
