The 126-acre Fort Dix Landfill site is an inactive landfill located in the southwest section of the U.S. Army Fort Dix Military Reservation, Pemberton Township, Burlington County, New Jersey. From 1950 until its closure in 1984, the site was used and operated by the Fort Dix Military Reservation to dispose of various wastes including household waste from the military base, paints, thinners, demolition debris, ash, and solvents. From 1968 to 1984, McGuire Air Force Base also used the landfill for waste disposal. A 1982 State investigation revealed ground water contamination beneath the site that had resulted from landfill leachate. The Record of Decision (ROD) addresses final source control at the site; however, if additional investigations reveal significant increases in unacceptable risk to human health and the environment, then additional remedial actions will be proposed. The primary contaminants of concern affecting the soil and debris are VOCs including benzene and toluene; other organics including PAHs; and metals including chromium and lead. The selected remedial action for this site is included.
