Monitoring Air Quality

To protect public health and the safety of workers onsite and the community where people live, work, and shop, Honeywell, under the supervision and at the direction of the EPA, implements an extensive air monitoring program. The Health and Safety Plan and the Perimeter Air Quality Monitoring Plan, which were reviewed and approved by EPA, are key parts of the cleanup. These documents are available at the Edgewater Public Library, 49 Hudson Ave., Edgewater, NJ 07020.

Components of the air monitoring program include:

  • "Real-time" Site Perimeter Monitoring - Daily "real-time" monitoring for dust and total volatile organic compounds (VOCs) is conducted during soil remediation using fixed and mobile air monitors around the perimeter of the site. Results can be found on the air monitoring map below.
  • Offsite Air Monitoring - To protect public health where people live, work, and shop, air sampling of site contaminants is conducted in the surrounding community as well as at the site perimeter fence line. Data is collected and analyzed for individual site contaminants. Samples are being collected from three locations in City Place and iPark, and one location in The Promenade, The Metropolitan, and Independence Harbor. EPA has set a risk-based screening level based on residential exposure (24 hours per day, 350 days per year.) More about risk screening levels can be found here. Results are compared to these risk screening levels and can be found below. There may be adjustments to this program based on sampling results.
