    Stage of Clean-up: Emergency Removal of Contaminants / Remedial Assessment Not Begun

    The Quanta Resources Corporation (QRC) site is located at 163 River Road in Edgewater, Bergen County, New Jersey. The site covers approximately 8 acres since the expansion of River Road took over a portion of the site. The site property is bordered to the north by the Celotex Industrial Park, to the south by the former Spencer-Kellogg Industrial Park, to the west by River Road, and to the east by the Hudson River. From approximately 1930 to 1981 the site had been used as an OIL and TAR storage and reclamation facility. Beginning in the early 1930s, Allied Chemical Corporation Asphalt Division (now Allied-Signal) operated a TAR processing plant at the site. In 1974, Allied Chemical sold the property to the estate of Mr. James Frola and Mr. Albert Von Dohln. In 1977, Mr. Frola and Mr. Van Dohln leased the property to E.R.P. Corporation for the storage and recycling of OIL. Shortly thereafter, E.R.P. assigned its lease to Edgewater Terminals, Incorporated. Quanta Resources Corporation obtained usage of the property through transfer of the lease from Edgewater Terminals.  More...
