Rep. Frelinghuysen Conducts Annual Inspection of Superfund Sites: Visits Two Locations in Fairfield 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.

Frelinghuysen visited two sites in Fairfield: Caldwell Trucking Co. and Unimatic Manufacturing Corporation. Joined by Mayor Jim Gasparini, Frelinghuysen received an update on the status of these two sites.

“I am pleased to see that the groundwater at the Caldwell Trucking site continues to be cleaned and that the EPA is preparing to evaluate the situation at the Unimatic site,” Frelinghuysen said. “I look forward to continuing to work with the EPA, the DEP, and local officials in Fairfield to protect the health of the community and the environment.”

Frelinghuysen visited four other Superfund sites in his District during the day.
