Stage of Clean-up: Remedy Selected
The Atlantic Resources Corporation (ARC) site includes contaminated soils on the ARC property and the releases of contaminants from those soils to the surrounding marshes and to the Raritan River. The site is part of the former Horseshoe Road industrial complex. The complex is located in a remote area in the northern outskirts of the Borough of Sayreville, Middlesex County, New Jersey. The ARC site is located on the northeastern corner of the complex, bordered to the north by the Middlesex County Utilities Authority (MCUA) property, and to the east by Conrail. To the south is the Atlantic Development Corporation (ADC) area and to the west is the Horseshoe Road Drum Dump (HRDD) area and the contaminated marsh area. The on-site facilities are approximately 200 feet from the Raritan River. The ADC, the HRDD and the marsh areas, and the Sayreville Pesticide Dump area, located on the south side of ADC, comprise the Horseshoe Road Superfund site. Historical aerial photographs indicate the ARC site was developed in 1939. The 1939 aerial photograph indicates buildings and three surface impoundments. Prior to 1972 AMMONIA wastes were reported to have been disposed of in these impoundments. Activities at the site during this period were primarily recycling and recovery of precious, semi-precious, and non-precious metals. More...
