NJ Superfund Site Cleanup Could Cost $36 Million
The proposal calls for the excavation and disposal of roughly 67,000 cubic yards of contaminated soil and backfilling the site with clean soil.
EPA also requested to remove contaminated soil and sediment from the Upper Hilliards Creek floodplain. EPA will conduct bioremediation as well to ensure vegetation and wetland area restoration.
The proposal is a followup to separate remediation projects that resulted in a $14 million settlement with Sherwin-Williams in 2017 and a subsequent $2 million cost recovery action by EPA that was settled earlier this year for $1.4 million.
About the Sherwin-Williams/Hilliards Creek Superfund SiteThe Sherwin-Williams/Hilliards Creek Superfund Site was a paint and varnish manufacturing facility until 1977, when the NJ Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) began investigating alleged discharges of paint solvents, lead, arsenic, and other hazardous wastes into the environment.
Nearby properties, known as the Dump Site and the Burn Site, are sources of contaminated soil and sediment that have spread into residential properties and surrounding bodies of water, including Hilliards Creek.
Improperly stored hazardous wastes have also spread contamination to surrounding bodies of water and residential properties, EPA says.

Lion was very responsive to my initial questions and the website was user friendly.

This training broke down the regulations in an easy-to-understand manner and made them less overwhelming. I now feel I have the knowledge to make more informed decisions.
I attended training from another provider and learned absolutely nothing. Lion is much better. Hands down.
Excellent class, super instructor, very easy to follow. No rushing through material. Would like to take his class again.
EH&S Facility Maintenance & Security Manager
I really enjoyed this training. Even after years on both sides of the comprehension coin, I find myself still learning! The quality of the delivery exceeded much of the training I have received in the past.
Well designed and thorough program. Excellent summary of requirements with references. Inclusion of regulations in hard copy form, as well as full electronic with state pertinent regulations included is a great bonus!
Amazing instructor; real-life examples. Lion training gets better every year!
As always, Lion never disappoints
I used the IT support number available and my issue was resolved within a few minutes. I don't see anything that could have made it better.
Very good. I have always appreciated the way Lion Tech develops, presents and provides training and materials.
