Honeywell has been working at the direction of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection (NJDEP) to design and implement a remedy for the Quanta Resources Superfund Site on River Road in Edgewater, New Jersey. Following a successful field demonstration test of the soil cleanup, final design has been completed, and full scale work is scheduled to commence in spring 2017.
Edgewater has a rich industrial history. However, previous industrial practices from the late 1880s to the 1980s contaminated soil, river sediments, and groundwater. The cleanup is now beginning.
Honeywell will clean up the Quanta site in a way that protects public health and the environment and allows for redevelopment, reclaiming one of Edgewater's last vacant sites and providing greater access to the waterfront. We are committed to doing so with the least disruption to the local community.
Site Restoration to Create Economic and Community Development Benefits
Once remediation has been completed, the site will be poised for redevelopment, bringing jobs and economic benefits to the community.
