Franklin Township, New Jersey
Federal Register Notice: September 08, 1983
Conditions at listing (December 1982): The Myers Property covers 2 to 3 acres in a rural area in Franklin Township, Hunterdon County, New Jersey. The site, currently an auto repair shop, previously contained various commercial facilities that produced pesticides. Several drums and asbestos materials are stored in buildings on the site. One well on the property supplies drinking water. The State recommended that it be closed because it is contaminated by various volatile organic chemicals. The site borders Cakepoulin Creek. A spring surfaces on the property and flows into the creek toward a State wildlife refuge.
Status (July 1983): The State has proposed removing the drums stored on site and is negotiating a Cooperative Agreement with EPA for the surface cleanup.
