Rep. Frelinghuysen Conducts Annual Inspection of Superfund Sites: Visits Mansfield Trail Dump in Byram Township

Morristown, New Jersey– Rep. Rodney Frelinghuysen (NJ-11) conducted his annual tour of Superfund sites in the 11th Congressional District of New Jersey yesterday. Frelinghuysen visited the sites to check on the progress being made in restoring these heavily polluted locations.

Frelinghuysen was accompanied by officials of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), as well as representatives from the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection (NJDEP) and numerous local elected officials.

The first site Frelinghuysen visited yesterday was the Mansfield Trail Dump in Byram Township. Joined by Byram Township councilmembers David Gray, Nisha Kash, Scott Olson, and Marie Raffay, Frelinghuysen received an update on the progress being made to clean up the site.

“I am pleased to see the progress being made at this site, although more work remains to be done,” Frelinghuysen said. “I applaud the EPA, the DEP, and Byram’s local officials for their commitment to seeing this site cleaned up – a commitment I wholeheartedly share.”

Frelinghuysen visited five other Superfund sites in his District later in the day.
