DuPont agrees to pay state $725K for mishandling hazardous waste at Salem County plant

DuPont agrees to pay state $725K for mishandling hazardous waste at Salem County plant

The state Department of Environmental Protection Thursday announced it has reached an agreement with E.I. DuPont De Nemours & Co. that requires the company to pay a fine of $725,000 and upgrade procedures for handling hazardous materials, and for routine and preventative maintenance at its Chambers Works facility in Salem County.

The agreement stems from DEP investigations of spills and handling problems at the plant, hazardous waste disposal landfill, drum and container storage areas, a rail siding, and an industrial wastewater treatment plant.

"This agreement reached with DuPont will ensure the Chambers Works facility meets the high standard of environmental protection that the DEP and community expects," DEP Commissioner Bob Martin said.

Under the agreement, DuPont must:

  • Perform an evaluation of the site-wide and area specific procedures relating to the proper storage, identification and accumulation of waste and submit revised plans to address deficiencies;
  • Provide a listing of actions and preventative measures to be undertaken to prevent spills and discharges of hazardous waste and hazardous substance from occurring throughout the plant and submit revised plans to address deficiencies;
