As of 28 June 2004

This site operated as a gasoline service station for approximately 18 years, until 1983. It is now abandoned. In 2000, the Atlantic County Health Department determined that the private potable well at a residence adjacent to the gas station was contaminated with benzene and dichloroethane (DCA) at levels exceeding the New Jersey Drinking Water Standards for these volatile organic compounds. A Point-of-Entry treatment (POET) system was installed on the well with funds provided by NJDEP to supply potable water for the resident. Sampling of potable wells at 10 nearby residences did not identify any others that were contaminated above Drinking Water Standards. NJDEP's Responsible Party Remediation Element issued a directive to the site owner that required removal of the four underground gasoline storage tanks and subsurface contaminated soils, but the owner did not comply. NJDEP's Remedial Response Element removed the four tanks and 740 tons of contaminated soil in 2001 using public funds and is periodically sampling private potable wells in the area to monitor ground water quality.
