The major elements of the chromium cleanup of 100 acres along the West Side of Route 440 is now complete, formal approvals of those elements pending. Monitoring of the remedy continues under the supervision of both the Court and the DEP.
Excavated areas have been filled with clean soil and restored predominantly with gravel. Open space areas and select areas along Route 440 are being planted with grass. Groundwater will continue to be monitored until DEP determines that no further action is required.
Honeywell built a new groundwater treatment plant to replace the facility that was located at 80 Kellogg Street. Treated water is discharged to the Passaic Valley Sewerage Commission under a permit.
