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

    The White Swan Cleaners/Sun Cleaners Area Ground Water Contamination site consists of overlapping contaminated ground water plumes from sources located on two properties in a commercial/residential area of Wall Township, Monmouth County, New Jersey. The sources are located at the former White Swan Laundry and Cleaners (a.k.a. Summit Bank, Fleet Bank), 1322 Sea Girt Avenue; and the former Sun Cleaners, 2213 Route 35 (a.k.a. 201 Manasquan Circle). The former Sun property is located approximately 0.3 mile southwest of the former White Swan property. In August 1997, a resident of Magnolia Avenue in Wall Township informed the Monmouth County Health Department (MCHD) that ground water samples collected in 1990 from three private irrigation wells had exhibited concentrations of tetrachloroethylene (PCE) up to 1,546 parts per billion (ppb). MCHD resampled the three irrigation wells, and sampled four additional irrigation wells. The analytical results indicated the presence of PCE in ground water at levels up to 595 ppb. The New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection (NJDEP) determined that three Sea Girt Municipal wells were at risk of contamination and sampled them for volatile organic compounds (VOC) on a monthly basis beginning in April 1999. No contamination was detected until September 1999, when PCE was detected in one of the wells at a concentration of 0.54 micrograms per liter (ug/L - equivalent to ppb).  More...
