EPA added the Puchack Well Field Superfund site in Pennsauken Township, New Jersey to the National Priorities List on March 6, 1998 because the site’s ground water was found to be contaminated with hexavalent chromium. The 450,000-square-foot Superfund site, located in Camden County, contains six public water supply wells that are no longer in use. Contaminants were first discovered in well water in 1970 and included chromium and volatile organic compounds (VOCs), which are potentially harmful chemicals that can evaporate easily in the air.   

All of the Puchack Well Field’s ground water wells have been shut down and residents have been connected to a municipal water supply, thereby reducing the public’s potential exposure to contamination. Sampling indicates that no currently operating municipal wells are being impacted by the chromium ground water plume. EPA’s cleanup has targeted both the contaminated ground water and the source areas that have contributed to the pollution.
