Keasbey Woodbridge Brownfield Development Area (BDA)
The Keasbey Woodbridge Brownfield Development Area (BDA) is comprised of approximately 270 acres. This includes the former
El Paso s chemical manufacturing site which laid contaminated, vacant, and underutilized, for decades. Through the designation of the
Woodbridge BDA, this site will be remediated and redeveloped into the Woodbridge Energy Center and the Woodbridge Eco-Wetland Park. On October 23, 2013,
a ground breaking event was attended by Governor Chris Christie, Senate President Stephen Sweeney, Woodbridge Township Mayor John McCormac, NJDEP's Office of
Brownfield Reuse, as well as local and county officials, to kick off the $845 million project.
you need to know about the Brownfield Process
A brownfield is defined under NJ state law (N.J.S.A. 58:10B-23.d)
as "any former or current commercial or industrial site that
is currently vacant or underutilized and on which there has been,
or there is suspected to have been, a discharge of a contaminant."
It is a local, state and national priority to put these sites
back into productive reuse. Facilitating successful real estate
investment projects on brownfield sites is critical to improving
the environment and economy of New Jersey.
