Cleanup of Cornell Dubilier Superfund site

The Cornell Dubilier Electronics site in South Plainfield, New Jersey received $30 million in ARRA funding to accelerate the cleanup of the contaminated soil and debris. The soil is contaminated with semi-volatile organic compounds, metals, and PCBs. Addressing the contaminated soils will allow redevelopment to begin at the industrial park, which is part of a Borough of South Plainfield approved redevelopment plan. Work at the site created nearly 60 jobs in the last quarter and more than 41,000 tons of soil are treated.
