Excerpt: Site Description The Ciba-Geigy Chemical Corporation site in Toms River, Dover Township, New Jersey, is presently owned and operated by the Ciba Specialty Chemicals Corporation (Ciba) which was formerly the Ciba-Geigy Chemical Corporation (Ciba-Geigy). The site encompasses approximately 1,400 acres, 320 of which are developed, with the remainder consisting of cleared areas, pine barrens and wetlands. From 1952 to 1990, Ciba-Geigy manufactured dyes, pigments, resins and epoxy additives. In 1988, pigments and dyestuffs manufacturing operations ceased and in December 1990, resins and epoxy manufacturing ceased. All commercial operations at the site ceased in December 1996. Most of the manufacturing buildings were subsequently demolished. Sludge and process wastes were disposed of in several locations on the site, including a stacked drum disposal area originally believed to contain approximately 35,000 drums and a 12-acre filtercake disposal area containing wastewater treatment plant sludge and process wastes. Wastewater treatment operations at the site also resulted in the contamination of several areas including backfilled lagoons near the Toms River and two equalization basins. Contamination from these areas and several others on site (referred to as source areas) is leaching into groundwater.
