NJDEP Known Contaminated Site List for New Jersey (Non-Homeowner), Edition 201202
The Known Contaminated Sites List (KCSNJ) for New Jersey (Non-Homeowner) are those non-homeowner sites and properties within the state where contamination of soil or ground water has been confirmed at levels equal to or greater than applicable standards. This list of Known Contaminated Sites may include sites where remediation is either currently under way, required but not yet initiated or has been completed. While quarterly revisions will be made, it is important to note that this GIS posting is "static" and does not perfectly reflect the "live" KCSNJ as new sites are added and old sites removed between updates. A "live" KSCNJ report can be viewed via Data Miner at:
. Homeowner sites generally involve small heating oil discharges that are resolved within months, making their inclusion in the GIS posting likely to be inaccurate and unduly alarming. They were removed from the quarterly GIS report but remain on the tabular report at:
A number of sites in the live KCSL have no X/Y coordinates and therefore are not included in the GIS version. These sites do appear on the above in the tabular reports. Coordinates for the GIS version of the KSCL are largely "front door" locations acquired via "address matching" which is an approximation of the facility front door. Since this method is occasionally in error, users are encouraged to notify BISPS of any these or any other inaccuracies in the KCSNJ. For guidance in how to report errors see the 'Supplemental Information' section below.
The Known Contaminated Sites in New Jersey report is produced by NJDEP in response to N.J.S.A. 58:10-23.16-17 that requires preparation of a list of sites affected by hazardous substances. It also satisfies the Site Remediation Program's obligations under the New Jersey New Residential Construction Off-Site Conditions Disclosure Act (N.J.S.A 46:3C1 et seq.).
