Notification of Environmental Investigation and Cleanup

____ Former Gerdau Ameristeel Site________

225 Elm Street, Perth Amboy, NJ

NJDEP Preferred Identification #023002

December 6, 2017

In accordance with New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection (NJDEP) regulations for “Notification and Public Outreach”, NCP Perth Amboy Holdings is required to provide information relating to environmental conditions and remedial activities being conducted at the above referenced site.

Former operations conducted at the site include copper smelting and refining from the late 1800s through the early 1970s and steel rod production from 1979 to 2009.  Chemicals associated with site operations include, but may not be limited to, metals, polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs), and polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs) and were initially detected in the soil in 2003. Metals have also been detected in groundwater underlying the Site.  Since this time, the person conducting the remediation has determined that the contamination in the groundwater has migrated from the site towards the Raritan River. The groundwater contamination has not migrated to off-site surrounding properties and is not expected to at any point in the future.

NCP Perth Amboy Holdings has completed investigative activities and will soon commence remedial (cleanup) activities in accordance with the requirements of the NJDEP to address the chemical contaminants detected.  The person conducting the remediation has evaluated the environmental impacts from the site including the potential for the contamination from this site to affect drinking water wells and/or the quality of indoor air to ensure that any impacts from the contamination are promptly mitigated.

For additional information or to obtain a copy of the complete fact sheet for this site, please contact NCP Perth Amboy Holdings, LLC at (415) 493-8013 or the Licensed Site Remediation Professional (LSRP) of record at 862-377-1209.
