Cleaning Up The Lower Passaic River

The sediments of the lower Passaic River, the longest river in New Jersey, are contaminated with a variety of hazardous substances, including dioxin, PCBs, mercury, DDT, pesticides and heavy metals.

The Diamond Alkali Superfund Site is made up of several properties in Newark, the Lower Passaic River Restoration Project Study Area, and the Newark Bay Study Area. EPA treats each as a unique part of its investigation and cleanup efforts, and EPA’s work on the Passaic River is one component of this three-part effort.
