Description
Excerpt: Site Description From 1953 to 1980, the Nascolite Corporation manufactured polymethyl methacrylate (poly-MMA) sheets, commonly known as plexiglass or acrylic, at this 17 1/2-acre site. The property is located at the western end of Doris Avenue on the municipal boundary of the cities of Millville and Vineland. Approximately 7 acres were used for production; the rest of the site is wooded. Operators stored waste residues from the distillation of scrap acrylic in buried tanks on the site. Liquid wastes leaked from the underground tanks into the surrounding soils and ground water. In 1980, Nascolite ceased operations after being cited and fined by the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection for illegal discharges. State investigations in 1981 and 1983 disclosed significant concentrations of volatile organic compounds (VOCs) in soil and ground water. Inspectors also found more than one hundred 55-gallon drums and several buried tanks, as well as asbestos in abandoned buildings on the site. EPA studies in the mid- 1980s confirmed the presence of VOCs and lead in soil and ground water.
