Agency, E. P. (n.d.). Montgomery Township Housing Development. Retrieved from

Excerpt: The Montgomery Township Housing Development Site (Site) is located in the southern part of Somerset County, New Jersey. Originally, the 71 homes at the 72-acre Site depended on private wells drawing water from the underlying aquifer. In 1978, volatile organic compounds (VOCs) were detected in the public well of the neighboring municipality of Rocky Hill. Concerned that the contamination might have spread to the groundwater beneath the housing development, State officials sampled the housing development's wells. Results indicated widespread contamination with various VOCs. Because of the proximity and the similarity of the contaminants present, a decision was made to address the Montgomery Township Housing Development Site and the Rocky Hill Municipal Well Site, also on the NPL, jointly. The area surrounding the Site is wooded and predominantly residential. Beden Brook skirts the northwestern corner of the Site, and the Millstone River bounds it on the east. The Site includes the 71 homes in the original development and six additional homes nearby.
