Honeywell has suspended the remediation of the Quanta Superfund site as we demolish the 115 River Road building. We expect to resume the remediation after the demolition is complete.

Beginning January 14, 2019, we will install steel sheet pile along the shoreline from the southern fenceline of the main Quanta property south to the previously-installed sheeting immediately south of the pier building. This work is expected to take 3-4 weeks. Installing the sheet pile close to the pier building will require closing parking areas and limiting vehicle and pedestrian access to the pier building. There will be changes to traffic patterns and pedestrian access weekly.

Air samples will be taken daily at the existing perimeter and offsite locations.

Remediation of Quanta Resources Superfund Site

Honeywell has been working at the direction of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection (NJDEP) to design and implement a remedy for the Quanta Resources Superfund Site on River Road in Edgewater, New Jersey. Following a successful field demonstration test of the soil cleanup, final design has been completed, and full scale work began in spring 2017.

Edgewater has a rich industrial history. However, previous industrial practices from the late 1880s to the 1980s contaminated soil, river sediments, and groundwater. The cleanup is now in progress.

Our Commitment

Honeywell will clean up the Quanta site in a way that protects public health and the environment and allows for redevelopment, reclaiming one of Edgewater's last vacant sites and providing greater access to the waterfront. We are committed to doing so with the least disruption to the local community.

Site Restoration to Create Economic and Community Development Benefits

Once remediation has been completed, the site will be poised for redevelopment, bringing jobs and economic benefits to the community.
