The Nascolite Corporation 17.5 acre site (over one-half of which is wooded) located in the cities of Millville and Vineland, Cumberland County, New Jersey, is in an area zoned as residential and industrial. Several homes exist near the site and rely on potable wells for drinking water. Between 1953 and 1980, the Nascolite Corporation manufactured polymethyl methacrylate (MMA) sheets, commonly known as plexiglass. Waste residues were stored in buried tanks onsite. Perforations in one of the tanks excavated indicated the possibility of liquid waste leaking into the soils. In 1981 and 1983, the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection sampled onsite and found ground water with significant concentrations of VOCs. Over 100 fifty five-gallon drums and several buried tanks were subsequently removed by the property owner and by EPA. The primary contaminants of concern affecting both ground water and soil include: VOCs, base/neutrals, and MMA. The selected remedial actions for the site are discussed. The estimated capital cost for this remedial action is $609,000 with annual O&M of $266,000.
