    Stage of Clean-up: Study Underway

    Conditions at Proposal (September 29, 1998): The United Sta tes Avenue Burn site is situated in the vicinity of United States Avenue, Gibbsboro, New Jersey. The three sources, the Burn Area , the Burn Landfill, and the Railroad Track, are located on conti guous properties east of Bridgewood Lake in Gibbsboro. The sourc e areas are within the Cooper River drainage basin and the White Sand Branch and Haney Run streams flow across the site into the B ridgewood Lake. From the mid 1800s to 1967, John Lucas & Company operated a paint manufacturing facility at a separate location in Gibbsboro. The Lucas manufacturing operations were acquired by the Sherwin -Williams Company in 1967, who operated the facility until its cl osure in 1977. The Burn Area source was used as disposal and bur n site for paint wastes generated at the manufacturing facility. Reports indicate that paint wastes and solvents were dumped and/ or poured onto the ground surface at the source location and then burned. The Burn Landfill was used for the disposal of paint wa stes, municipal waste and the storage of sludges generated from the former paint manufacturing facility's wastewater treatment pla nt. During investigations of the Burn Area and Burn Landfill sou rces, representatives from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agen cy (EPA) notified the Sherwin-Williams Company of the existence of discolored soils along a section of the Railroad Track.  More...
