Stop the Warehouse Complex Near Our Homes!

The containment of contaminated soil near our homes is not as simple as paving the ground! The owners of this Superfund site on 200 Gregg Street in Lodi, NJ plan to sell the property to a corporation that wishes to build a warehouse complex within 100 feet of our residential neighborhood rather than follow the old zoning laws requiring a 300 ft. buffer. The aerial map shows the dirt covered region that was Inmont Chemical on Gregg Street, which was destroyed by fire in 1972. One year ago, my neighbors were told BASF Corporation wished to extend the Wetlands property line. The reason given was to avoid re-testing the soil before the EPA stepped in. Now, 1 year later, we were notified of this proposed project that would come within 100 ft. of our property lines (note the red marker and the surrounding residential streets), essentially destroying the value of our homes. No soil will be excavated- the vegetation will be removed & the land covered with asphalt and warehouses. The water table is already high in this area. Our homes have sump pumps to control water damage. Where will this run off water & contamination go? What about the noise, pollution, and vermin factor? More importantly, we were LIED to. BASF hid their intent. They needed that Wetlands extension to sell this parcel of land. Please help support our desire to stop this project as it is currently proposed. It will bring the warehouse complex deep into the Woodmere section- Shady Lane, Redstone Lane, Trudy Drive, Pearl Court, Yolanda Place, and Lorelei Court. And yes, Branca Court too! The application has been submitted and we need the support of our neighbors and townspeople. Let the Zoning Board and the Town Council hear us loud and clear. Stop this change to the buffer zone and save our neighborhood!
