Stage of Clean-up: Design Underway
Conditions at proposal (June 24, 1988): Kauffman & Minteer, Inc. (K & M) transports bulk liquids in company-owned tanker trucks from a 5-acre plot in Jobstown, Burlington County, New Jersey. The materials transported are primarily synthetic organics, plasticizers, resins, vegetable oils, PETROLEUM OILS, and ALCOHOLS. During 1960-80, water from the interior-washing of the company's trucks was disposed of in an on-site, unlined lagoon. In 1981, K & M began to dispose of its waste water off-site. The lagoon has not been properly closed. It has no retention pond to help control overflowing during heavy rain. In June 1984, a dike surrounding the lagoon broke, allowing waste water to migrate off-site. More...
