The Spence Farm is located approximately 1.5 miles northeast of the Town of New Egypt in Plumsted Township, Ocean County, New Jersey. The total area investigated is approximately 83 acres, of which 30 acres are stream valleys and swamp lands. Waste disposal occurred at scattered locations throughout a 20 acre low-lying wooded area adjacent to two adjoining tributaries to Crosswicks Creek. Dumping of hazardous wastes in drums, bulk and free-flowing liquid form occurred during 1961 to 1967. Contaminants found at the site included organic and inorganic compounds. The organic compounds found onsite are specialty and research chemicals and are not priority pollutants. The cost-effective remedial alternative selected for this site includes: removal and off-site disposal of all drums and lab packs to a RCRA facility; excavation and off-site disposal f visibly contaminated soil to a RCRA facility; sediment control during excavation and sampling efforts, and monitoring of on-site wells, annually, for a five year period. Capital cost for the selected alternative is estimated to be $845,500 and the five-year O&M ground water monitoring costs are estimated to be $95,300.
