This New Jersey site was contaminated by lead shot and associated arsenic and antimony accumulated from gun club members who used the land as a shooting range for forty years. Significant tracts of freshwater wetland habitats remain on the property, and lead contamination levels vary across the site.
Great Ecology conducted ecological and biological assessments, as well as toxicology studies to create an Ecological Risk Assessment Report. The work was accepted by the NJDEP and used by them as a “Gold Standard” for future eco-risk work in the state. Great Ecology also developed the Remedial Action Work plan (2007) for the site, intended to restore the forested wetland onsite and strategize remedies for Natural Resource Damage (NRD). Future work on the site will include construction administration and long-term monitoring of the wetland restoration.
