The Bog Creek Farm site is a 4-acre disposal area consisting of a man-made pond, bog, and trench in Howell Township, Monmouth County, New Jersey. The site is bordered to the north by Squankum Brook, to the west by two residences and a riding stable, and to the south and north by open fields. Between 1973 and 1974 organic solvents and paint residues were dumped around a trench in the eastern portion of the property, creating a highly contaminated soil area. In late 1974 the property owner removed some waste from the disposal trench and covered the trench under direction from the Howell Township Health Department. A 1985 Record of Decision selected a first operable unit remedy that involved excavating the soil from the waste trench, pond, and bog areas and incinerating the soil onsite. The second operable unit focuses on remediating the contaminated ground water in the shallow aquifer and the contaminated brook sediment. The primary contaminants of concern affecting the sediment and ground water are VOCs including benzene, toluene and xylenes; and other organics including phenols. The selected remedies for the site are described.
