The Price Landfill site is located in Egg Harbor Township, New Jersey. It was originally a sand and gravel excavation operation which closed in 1968. Starting in May 1971, the Price landfilling operation began to accept a combination of both drummed and bulk liquid wastes. Initial listings of wastes consisted of industrial chemicals, sludges, oil, grease, septic tank grease, and sewer wastes. It is estimated that 9.1 million gallons of chemical waste were disposed of at the site. The cost-effective remedial action for this site includes: replacement and relocation of the Atlantic City Municipal Utilities Authority water supply well field and transmission facilities and additional analysis of plume management, source control and treatment remedies. The capital cost for the selected alternative is estimated to be $5,070,000.
