Starting April 1, 2021, Honeywell’s contractors will be on the Quanta property to remix a small area of completed soil solidification in the Pier 115 parking lot. This work involves removing the temporary gravel cap and remixing the previously solidified soil with additional liquid concrete. Once the area has hardened, the temporary cap over the area of remixed solidified soil will be replaced.

An excavator will be used to remix the soil. Honeywell will control dust with sprays of water and monitor the air for dust at the perimeter of the Quanta property. Remixing of solidified soil generally does not generate odors or emissions. However, out of an abundance of caution, Honeywell will deploy air monitoring stations in City Place and iPark and closely monitor air quality and site activities. The work is expected to take approximately one week; no work will take place on Saturdays.

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.
