A Superfund Site

Reich Farm remediation

One would think that state and federal officials would require all discharge or potential discharge pipes, whether active or not, to be removed that dump directly into a public waterway, especially when a superfund site is involved. Pictured above is a discharge pipe on the Ciba Geigy Superfund Site that has the potential to discharge directly to Winding River (head waters of the Toms River) here in Toms River, New Jersey. It is interesting why such a pipe exists and what it was used for since its outlet is the river.

Radon

Pictured below is a map of radon ranges in the State of New Jersey. It is interesting to note that this NJDEP map shows low levels for Toms River and surrounding Ocean County, yet some of our public drinking well's are impacted by naturally occurring radiation.
