Project Summary June 2013 Initial Receptor Evaluation Cranford Development Associates, LLC 215 Birchwood Avenue (Block

292, Lot 2) Cranford, New Jersey Block 292, Lot 2 NJDEP Case #12‐02‐08‐1401‐07, NJDEP PI# 573212

In 2012, Cranford Development Associates, LLC (CRDA) removed 1,014 tons of debris/fill in accordance with the Minor Landfill Disruption Approval Application (“MLDAA”) prepared by H2M Associates, Inc. and approved by the NJDEP in November 2011. The fill/debris layer consisted of approximately 65% soil/fill and 35% debris, was located four (4) to five (5) feet below site grade (bsg), was approximately four (4) feet thick, and extended over an area that is approximately 16,400 square feet in size. The MLDAA required that any fill/debris material considered suspect were to be held for subsequent characterization and disposal. The results of the fill/debris material site investigation sampling identified one area of lead impacted debris/fill. This area of lead impacted fill/debris has been designated as area of environmental concern ( “AOC”) 1. Based on conversations with the NJDEP, the original intention was to address the removal of the small area of lead impacted soils within the Sanitary Landfill Closure Report that has been prepared for the Property. However, during the final stages of the debris/fill removal, an area of what appeared to be buried crushed 55 ‐gallon capacity drums was encountered. The drums and surrounding impacted soils were designated as AOC 2. Since the drums were required to be addressed using a Licensed Site Remediation Professional (LSRP), it was decided that both AOCs would be addressed by the LSRP through the preparation and submission of a Remedial Action Report. The impacted soils were excavated, and the results of post ‐excavation sampling performed in accordance with the applicable NJDEP guidance and the Technical Regulations for Site Remediation demonstrated compliance with the NJDEP Soil Remediation Standards, the NJDEP default Impact to Groundwater Screening Levels (dIGWSL), and the site‐specific Impact to Groundwater Soil Remediation Standards (IGWSRS) (where applicable). Based upon the depth of the former soil contamination in AOCs 1 and 2, and the anticipated depth to groundwater, a Site Investigation of groundwater is required. This investigation has been partially completed through the installation and sampling of a temporary ground water sampling point. The results of the sampling demonstrated compliance with the NJDEP Ground Water Quality Standards. The installation of a permanent well has been scheduled to complete the Site Investigation of groundwater.
