U.S.:Federal government asks Ford to retest Superfund site in New Jersey

Federal government asks Ford to retest Superfund site in New Jersey

Associated Press

RINGWOOD, N.J. -- The federal government has ordered Ford Motor Co. to retest a former Superfund site that residents say remains littered with sludge and other materials that could pose health problems.

The 500-acre site, adjacent to the Ringwood Manor section of Ringwood State Park, was used as a dump for car parts, solvents, and paint sludge from 1967 to 1974. It was declared a federal Superfund site in 1983, and Ford was ordered to conduct and pay for a $2.5 million cleanup.

The EPA certified a cleanup of surface areas in 1994, but mine shafts and some landfill sections were not cleaned out, only covered with soil. The automaker, which maintains that the site meets federal cleanup standards, said it is working with the Environmental Protection Agency to determine what type of testing will be done. It was not known, though, when the testing would begin or how long it would take.

“We remediated the site and were cleared by the EPA, so we considered the site clean,” said Kristin Kinley, a Ford spokeswoman. “But now that this has been brought to our attention ... we’re going to look at it again.”

Residents who live near the dump claim sludge and other materials there are to blame for various health problems, and soil testing done last year by an environmental law firm found a lead concentration of 118,000 parts per million -- about 295 times more than federal standards allow.
