Somerville Borough recently closed on a $808,710 loan with the NJ Water Bank to remediate approximately 10 acres of a former 47.4-acre landfill to restore it as a natural stream corridor. The project involves the rehabilitation and restoration of a stream corridor and existing wetland area. The Borough proposes lining the area of the natural stream corridor that flows north to south between the two former landfill lobes, located above a moderately wooded area identified as the South Triangle. A stream-lining system will be constructed, known as the "Green Seam" wetland corridor. The final cover of the Green Seam Corridor will prevent polluted runoff and leachate from entering the stream and will become part of a contiguous cap that will cover the entire landfill. This project will remediate Contaminated Ground Water entering the Raritan River.
