EPA issued a Fact Sheet (April 2024) describing work “to address contamination beneath River Road.” Air Monitoring data for this project is posted here.

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

Honeywell has been working under the oversight 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. Between May 2017 and March 2021 more than 140,000 cubic yards of soil contaminated with coal tar or arsenic were solidified in place, preventing the contaminants from being able to move. The site has been capped with at least 6 inches of crushed stone or asphalt.
