Subject: [CPEO-MEF] Old Bridge Nike site (NJ)
Test results clear parts of former missile base
Town acquires 6-acre portion for storage or commuter parking

Sayreville Suburban (NJ)
October 25, 2007

OLD BRIDGE - Despite concerns raised two years ago about cancer-causing agents at the site, most of the former Nike Missile Base has been deemed clear of contamination, township officials said.

The Board of Education owns a portion of the site, on which it keeps its maintenance department and transportation garage, according to Superintendent of Schools Simon Bosco.

Transportation employees raised concerns about the site in January 2006 after a few bus drivers discovered they had cancer, and the school district opted to relocate most of the employees while testing was done.
