Source of Wampum Lake pollution in dispute Board members differ on Fort Monmouth as cause of contamination BY NICOLE ANTONUCCI Atlanticville (NJ) April 19, 2012The source of heavy metal contamination in Wampum Lake in Eatontown remains a topic of debate among officials involved in the redevelopment of Fort Monmouth. According to Frank Barricelli, a member of the Fort Monmouth Restoration Advisory Board (RAB), the metals found in the lake are not uncommon, and he said there is no evidence that one specific source of contamination is to blame.
"There is non-point-source of contamination to Wampum Lake," Barricelli said in a presentation at the April 5 RAB meeting. "It is a cumulative effect of many sources over the years. Common practices of everyday living produce environmental contamination."
Citing a study done by the Monmouth County Health Department of 20 lakes and personal research, Barricelli showed that the same metals were found in other lakes nearby and could have come from all of the areas surrounding the lake as well as Fort Monmouth.
