Groundwater Sampling Schedule

Hoffmann-La Roche Inc. (Roche) is continuing to work with the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection (NJDEP) to remediate the Roche-Nutley site. As part of this work, Roche is required to take regular groundwater measurements and samples from various wells installed both on-site and on several streets in Clifton/Nutley. We also need to conduct periodic sampling to monitor the effectiveness of interim remedial measures we have already undertaken in certain areas to clean up groundwater.

Following is a schedule of planned groundwater sampling. Weather permitting, the sampling will begin on the listed date and continue at various locations for up to several weeks. Sampling will involve a small truck and one or two crew members to carry out the work. The work will be conducted between 8:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m., Monday through Friday. During this time, residents will have full access to their streets.

We greatly appreciate your patience and understanding as we carry out this work. We remain committed to cleaning up the site safely and effectively. Should you have any questions regarding the cleanup or this groundwater sampling, please contact Teresa O'Meara, Manager, Site Environmental Health & Safety, 973-830-0098 or teresa.omeara@roche.com
