The Environmental Protection Agency will receive $2.1 million in reimbursement from three real estate companies for the cost of cleaning up a former chemical packaging site in New Jersey. The property was identified as a Superfund site after investigators discovered 1,600 drums of leaking and improperly stored chemicals including benzene and polychlorinated byphenyls. The real estate companies leased the property to Abrachem Chemical, which filed for bankruptcy in 2009, the year the cleanup concluded.
