Experts Weigh the Pros and Cons of a $1.7 Billion EPA Cleanup Plan for the Passaic River at an NJIT
Date:7/24/2014

nities to remove water and to solidify sediments for rail transport," Meegoda said.

The sediment in the Passaic is contaminated with dioxin, polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs), heavy metals, pesticides and other industrial pollutants deposited by manufacturers along the river over the past century. The EPA notes that a major source of dioxin in the river is pollution from the Diamond Alkali facility in Newark, which produced Agent Orange and pesticides during the 1960s.

"The contamination is far above the EPA's accepted levels and poses a significant risk to people who eat fish from the river and to the wildlife itself," said Alice Yeh, a remedial project manager for the EPA.

The EPA announced its proposal in April after seven years of study. It was developed in consultation with the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration and with outreach to representatives of the communities along the river. The EPA is still accepting public comment until August 20, 2014.
