NJWEA South Section

Price’s Pit Landfill Remediation Wastewater Tour
Written by Chris Jepson

August 7, 2023
On August 7, 2023 the South Section of the NJWEA and invited guests had a lecture on the history of this landfill followed by a tour of the wastewater treatment facility.  A total of 42 attendees.  Due to the large number we were broken up into 2 groups and one group toured while the other heard the powerpoint lecture in the conference room.  Then the groups switched places.  A total of about 2 hours.  This was prepared by the USEPA Region 2 and the USACE – Philadelphia District.
Ira-Perry Katz, the USEPA project manager provided the lecture and answered many questions during the presentation.  The tour was led by Jose Nieves (N-3) who was very knowledgeable about the systems in place and answered many questions.  Several other staff members at the site and also USACE representatives were also there and participated.  The system was very large and robust with major redundancy of all units.
In 1980 residential wells in the area were found to be contaminated with VOCs (benzene, chloroform, vinyl chloride, etc.).  In 1981 EPA provided drinking water to those impacted residences.  In 1985-1986 a remedial investigation was completed and a ROD was issued for the construction of the groundwater extraction and treatment to control the discharge of leachate from the landfill and control the contaminant plume.  Conveyance of treated groundwater to the ACUA Pleasant Avenue PS and completion of a landfill cap was constructed.
In 2009 the regulatory agency management of the Site was transferred from NJDEP to USEPA.  A remedial design for a 300-gpm groundwater treatment facility (GWTF) was completed in 2010 and the construction was completed and facility startup commenced in 2013.  It includes physical, chemical and biological treatment processes to treat the contaminated ground water.  It treats about 10 million gallons a month.  The system is projected to operate for another 15 years.  The landfill cap and gas management system are operated by the NJDEP.
Following the tour and presentation  - attendees headed to Ventura’s for a great lunch and further discussions.   The tour and presentation were excellent and we thank all those involved in planning and implementation of the days’ events.
