Contaminated Picatinny site needs cleanup, arsenal says
Environmental board to focus on well faulted for polluting ground water
By Rob Jennings, Daily Record

ROCKAWAY TWP. -- Picatinny Arsenal's environmental restoration board
will discuss one of its original contaminated sites -- Building 24, a
former dry well and plating facility -- when it meets tonight.

The building was torn down about 10 years ago, and the site was capped
with soil, Picatinny spokesman Frank Misurelli said. It was closed in

However, a carcinogen that was used as a cleaning agent,
trichloroethane, continues to contaminate the ground water and will
require an eventual cleanup, Misurelli added.
