Will test diluting

plume of pollution

Nearly 30 years after discovering that toxic chemicals migrated off its property and contaminated groundwater beneath 450 homes in Pompton Lakes, DuPont is readying two new tests to study possible methods to remove the pollution. A previous study of a third cleanup option has already produced positive results. One of DuPont’s new tests will determine whether it can dilute or flush out the contaminated groundwater plume beneath the residential neighborhood in a controversial process called hydraulic surcharging.
