The Phase I ESA was completed at this property on March 9, 2017. This 0.57-acre property includes one parcel and is located at the intersection of Vernon Avenue and Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard. At the time of the inspection, the site was a vacant, undeveloped lot. The site was developed as early as 1925 with a bulk fuel storage facility owned by the Standard Oil Company of New Jersey. The site continued to operate as a bulk storage and distribution facility under various names until at least 1998. The subject site has remained vacant since the former structures associated with the fuel storage facility were removed in 2001.
Recognized Environmental Conditions (RECs) identified in the Phase I ESA included the historical use of the site as a bulk fuel storage facility with two documented releases resulting in soil and groundwater contamination; the historical and current uses of several surrounding properties as bulk fuel storage and filling stations; and the documented releases to the environment on multiple adjacent and nearby properties.
