Cleanup work progressing at ex-Raritan Arsenal site Army Corps working on six areas of 3,200-acre property BY JACQUELINE DURETT Edison/Metuchen Sentinel (NJ) May 2, 2012Cleanup work is progressing at the 3,200-acre former Raritan Arsenal site in Edison.
The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers held a public meeting April 26 to update residents on the progress and next steps of work at the site, which runs along the Raritan River in Edison and Woodbridge. Most of the land is being used for light industrial purposes, including the Raritan Center Industrial Park.
The arsenal was used extensively for U.S. Army operations from 1917 to 1963, primarily for ordnance storage and shipping. Waste materials were buried on the site, in accordance with accepted practices at the time. In 1961 the Ordnance Corps Headquarters identified 16 areas of potential contamination.
Sandra L. Piettro, project manager, said that to date, the project has cost $86.5 million, with $1.9 million being spent this year. Next year’s costs are still undetermined, but it is estimated that completing work on the site will cost $33.5 million.
