  • Site Description
    Stage of Clean-up: Construction Completed

    Conditions at Proposal (October 1995): The Franklin Burn si te (FBS) is comprised of six separate parcels of land, located in Franklin Township, Gloucester County, New Jersey. Federal and s tate investigations indicate that unpermitted COPPER reclamation activities occurred at the site, beginning in or before the early 1960s. Piles of scrap COPPER wire, capacitors, and transformers were deposited on the ground and ignited to remove paint and ins ulation before metal recovery. The burn operations generated har d-packed black ash piles containing numerous hazardous substances . Four of the six ash piles (burn sites [BS] 1, 3, 4, and 5) are located north of Marshall Mill Road in Franklin Township. BS 2 is located approximately 2 miles to the north, east of Lincoln Av enue in Franklin Township. BS 7 is located approximately 1 mile to the northeast of the clustered Burn Sites, 2,000 feet northwes t of Marshall Mill Road. The six ash pile locations are geograph ically related, were created through similar activities, contain similar hazardous substances, and impact the same population, aqu ifer, and surface waters. All of the areas that form the FBS are located within rural-residential neighborhoods, with one ash pil e (BS 5) located in the yard of a private residence.  More...
