    Belmar had a plethora of gas stations on Ocean Avenue that were never decontaminated.

    For contaminated areas scroll down to Belmar. The marina is listed, Freedman’s still active? Something also wrong with 9th Ave Pier area. Welcome to Belmar.

    It was my understanding it was the rear of Friedman’s to the lot, that was defiantly remediated

    There is no lawful remediation that can ever take place in NJ within the short time frame the work was done at Freedmans. Completely unknown and not documented as approved by EPA.

    Freedmans Bakery was still in business when all of that area was taken care of. Then fences were erected around the area and a more treatment was on going until the job was finished. The fences were then taken down and the parking lot was resurfaced and used. After the building was sold the new owners rehabbed the building and then the parking lot again. It took a very long time. Years.

    I also never understood how that remediation at Freedman’s happened so quickly.

    Some where in that mess Pyanoe Plaza was dug up and was found dirty. I believe that came from a Main Street property and was taken care of.
    There has to be records of all of this. It didn’t happen over night. There was a smell of naptha in the town in the plaza then referred to as Acme plaza. Every business on Main Street including the office where I worked was questioned.No one announced where the smell was coming from. It disappeared.

    Dpw watcher saw the fuel leak and, because no one checked the records before digging in the plaza,the DEP was notified by citizen and the workers were stopped. There were oil tanks from homes/buildings that were demolished years before and the land had not been remediated.

    Any ideas on what the booms are for on the Shark River at the south end of McLearie Park, near Belmar Blvd., or are they fishing nets? Also how long does an OPRA request normally take? Is over a week for a few items acceptable or allowed or is there no time limit?

    No idea on the booms, maybe prep for dredging?
    OPRA requests normally must be fulfilled within 7 business days. More info here:

    #14 & #15 …. the floats, markers and pipe are being staged for the hydraulic dredging project …. the dredge spoils would be pumped to the marina parking lot, or Seaview Island, for dewatering.
