Interesting article on Jersey City Golf Course and contamination. Look who's involved: Applied

Will they treat the Harrison contamination in the same manner?

Group rips DEP on cleanup

Saturday, June 10, 2006

A liner missing from a chromium container at the Liberty National Golf Course in Jersey City should have been caught by the Department of Environmental Protection case manager monitoring the site.

But the case manager had been transferred - and not replaced - according to Joe Morris, director of the Jersey City-based Interfaith Community Organization, the group that successfully sued Honeywell Corporation to clean up the Roosevelt Drive-In site off Route 440 in Jersey City, the Hudson County's largest chromium pit.

"It's Keystone Kops enforcement," said Morris. "That's why we are asking the governor to appoint a 'chromium czar' to supervise cleanups."

DEP doesn't dispute that case manager Bob Marcolina had been transferred.

Marcolina had "moved on to another assignment," said Ed Putnam, DEP's assistant director for remedial response. "But he (Marcolina) was brought back to help with the NFA" - the "No Further Action" letter issued in 2004, which was the final sign-off on the remediation work.

The NFA letter was authorized by DEP Commissioner Bradley Campbell, despite the fact that he had imposed a moratorium on issuing NFAs.

New Jersey Sierra Club Director Jeff Tittel accused Campbell of playing politics. The part-owner of the course, Applied Development of Hoboken, is politically connected, he charged. The other owners are Reebok founder Paul Fireman and his son Dan.

"I think the former commissioner was more into playing politics than public health," Tittel said.

Officials at Applied Development did not return phone calls seeking comment.

Campbell, now an attorney in West Orange, brushed aside the allegation.

"I launched aggressive action at over 100 (cleanup) sites - all this when the Sierra Club was asleep at the switch," Campbell said. "The reality is DEP was acting aggressively on chromium sites while the Sierra Club has abandoned Jersey City residents."
