Gas Company Pays $10M to Resolve NJ Superfund Site Claims

Posted on 11/17/2020 by Lauren Scott

An industrial gas company is set to pay $10 million to settle Superfund claims at a contaminated industrial site in Linden, NJ. The consent decree, filed in Federal court on October 28, outlines how the funds will be used to clean the LCP Superfund site and recoup response costs already incurred by EPA.

The 26-acre LCP site was home to a series of manufacturing companies from 1942 to 1991, most notably a chlorine production facility in the 1970’s and 80’s. According to EPA, the chlorine production facility, known as LCP Chemicals, among other companies were involved in the discharge of mercury-laced sludge to lagoons. In 1972, 1974 and 1979, the State of New Jersey documented releases from the brine sludge lagoon into South Branch Creek.

Through the years, parts of the site were also leased or sold to other manufacturing companies. The industrial gas company involved in the $10 million settlement took over some operations at the site after one of those manufacturing companies restructured.

As part of the agreement, the company will pay $10 million to resolve its liability for past and future response costs. In return, the Federal government agrees to not take further legal action against the company for the allegations noted in the agreement.
