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

Amazing instructor; real-life examples. Lion training gets better every year!
The training was impressive. I am not a fan of online training but this was put together very well. I would recommend Lion to others.
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.
The price was reasonable, the time to complete the course was manageable, and the flexibility the online training allowed made it easy to complete.
