NJ to receive $100m in stimulus money to put towards superfund cleanup


New Jersey is getting more than $100 million in new federal funding for cleanup of Superfund sites. U.S. Sen. Frank Lautenberg said Wednesday that the money to help remove toxic materials from contaminated industrial sites will come from the Economic Recovery Act signed into law in February by President Barack Obama. Eight New Jersey sites have been designated to receive the money. The former Roebling Steel site in Florence Township, the Welsbach site in Camden and Gloucester City and the Cornell Dubilier Electronics site in South Plainfield will get the most , more than $25 million each.

New funds will also go to Superfund cleanup projects in Vineland, Sayreville, Morganville, Galloway Township and Pleasantville. New Jersey has more Superfund sites than any other state in the country.
