DECISION and SUMMARY STATEMENT:
On October 14, 2020, Roche started the 30–day public comment period for proposed response actions for the Windsor Sewer Plume as detailed in the following Focused Feasibility Study: Windsor Sewer Plume Focused Feasibility Study. A virtual public meeting was held October 26, 2020, during which the proposed response actions were discussed. Slides from the Technical Presentation are available on this website at www.Roche-Nutley.com. Roche received no comments/questions on this Focused Feasibility Study (FFS) during the public meeting or the public comment period. For the reasons stated in the Windsor Sewer Plume Focused Feasibility Study, Roche has selected and will implement the response actions proposed in the FFS for groundwater in the Windsor Sewer Plume. The New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection has previously approved the proposed remedial plan now selected and to be implemented by Roche.
The former Hoffmann-La Roche Inc. site in Nutley, NJ, was sold in 2016 and is no longer operational. THIS WEBSITE IS ONLY ABOUT THE ENVIRONMENTAL REMEDIATION OF THE FORMER ROCHE NUTLEY SITE.
