Emotions ran high Sept. 21 as Hopewell area residents expressed concern about their health and property values at an information meeting held to discuss cleanup efforts on Somerset and Lafayette streets in the area surrounding the former Rockwell/Kooltronic plant at 57 Hamilton Ave. in Hopewell Borough.

A soil decontamination project was completed in 2000 at the former manufacturing facility, currently in use as an office building, The Hopewell Center, followed by soil cleanup in 2002 on a 1.16 acre "vacant parcel" owned by Rockwell Automation at the east end of Somerset Street in Hopewell Township, and "limited soil cleanup" at the Valley Oil property on 54 Somerset St., adjacent to the vacant lot.


The Vapor Intrusion Standard for TCE allowed by NJDEP is three micrograms per cubic meter, said Ms. Brady. "Some readings have been eight, 10, or in the 40s and 50s," in area homes with shallow groundwater, she said.
