Site Description

Veolia is located at 125 Factory Lane in Middlesex, New Jersey. Veolia owns and operates a solvent-reprocessing facility that is located on a four-acre site in an industrial area of Middlesex Borough. The property was used as a railroad steam engine plant in the early 1900's. In 1967, Marisol began operations at the site. Operations at the facility include the blending of spent solvents for industrial fuels and reclaiming spent solvents through distillation. The facility has a permit to treat and store hazardous waste solvents for blending and processing. Veolia is surrounded by Conrail, Reagent Chemical and Rhone Poulenc.

Potential Threats and Contaminants

There have been releases of contaminants to the soil and groundwater as a result of activities at Veolia. The contaminants include organic constituents, such as benzene, toluene, methylene chloride, tetrachloroethene, trichloroethene and chlorobenzene. The groundwater contamination under the Veolia facility can be partly attributed to activities at the adjacent Rhone-Poulenc facility. New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection (NJDEP) is overseeing the cleanup at Rhone-Poulenc.

Cleanup Approach and Progress

The cleanup of the soil contamination included removal of contaminated surface soil. The contaminated soil was sent off-site to an authorized disposal facility. Since 1983, any small concentrations of contaminants left in soil after the removals have been covered when the site was paved with concrete to a thickness of approximately eight inches.

The cleanup of the groundwater consists of extracting the contaminated groundwater, removing the contaminants with an air stripper, utilizing the water for on-site processes and then discharging the treated groundwater to the facility's sewer system.

Veolia must continue the groundwater recovery and treatment. Veolia must also conduct an investigation to fully characterize the groundwater contamination, which will ensure the effectiveness of the groundwater recovery and treatment system in containing the contamination from further migration. Veolia must also develop a long-term groundwater monitoring system. The use of land and groundwater at the site and surrounding area will be restricted where contamination exceeds residential standards.
