The 195-acre Vineland State School site is in the northern part of the city of Vineland, Cumberland County, New Jersey. The site overlies three aquifers which serve as major sources of drinking water for the county. There were numerous allegations of improper waste disposal at five separate onsite subsites. Subsite 1, a former landfill which has since been used to covered and vegetated, reportedly had been used to dump mercury- and arsenic-contaminated pesticides. At subsite 2, PCB-contaminated fluid spilled and spread over a 1-acre area. The State remediated subsite 2 in 1988, which included demolishing and disposing of approximately 3,900 tons of PCB-contaminated soil and concrete pads offsite. Subsite 3 was a garbage dump for 10 years before being backfilled and used as a baseball field. Subsites 4 and 5 were pits where transformer oils and chemicals were dumped in the mid 1950s. Investigation results of the subsites excluding subsite 2, which was cleaned up in 1988, revealed only low levels of contamination.
