This site is also known as the A&L Oil Mobil service station and is owned by Red Horse Shoppes, Inc. In 1990, NJDEP was notified that the soil at the service station and an on-site potable well and several off-site private potable wells were contaminated with petroleum products. The likely source of the contamination was identified as a leaking underground gasoline storage tank at the service station. NJDEP’s Responsible Party Remediation Element issued two directives requiring the gasoline retailer to investigate the site and take immediate corrective action. A&L Oil removed four underground fuel storage tanks but left the soil excavated during the tank removal on site and did not delineate the ground water contamination. In addition, A&L Oil did not comply with a 1993 NJDEP directive that required the gasoline retailer to address nearby private potable wells believed to be contaminated with gasoline-related volatile organic compounds. In 1999, NJDEP’s Remedial Response Element began a Remedial Investigation and Remedial Action Selection (RI/RAS) to delineate the contamination in the soil and ground water and evaluate cleanup alternatives. Sampling of nearby private potable wells conducted as part of the RI/RAS identified one well that was contaminated with volatile organic compounds at levels exceeding New Jersey Drinking Water Standards and a Point-of-Entry Treatment (POET) system was installed at that property. NJDEP began the soil and ground water sampling phase of the RI/RAS in 2001. Two deep monitor wells that were installed as part of the ground water investigation phase have been determined to be free of contamination.
