SITE DESCRIPTION/RESOLUTION OF ENVIRONMENTAL CONCERNS:
As of January 2005

Sampling conducted by the Atlantic County Health Department in 2003 identified five private potable wells in this area that were contaminated with dibromochloropropane, ethylene dibromide, dichloropropane and mercury at levels exceeding New Jersey Drinking Water Standards. The source of the contamination is unknown. NJDEP’s Environmental Claims Administration installed Point-of-Entry Treatment (POET) systems on the contaminated wells to provide potable water for the residents while additional evaluation of the site is underway. NJDEP's Remedial Response Element will sample nearby private wells in 2004 and use the findings to delineate the Currently Known Extent (CKE) of the potable well contamination to evaluate long-term options to supply potable water to residents at the site.
