Dear Elmwood Park Residents:
Please be advised that the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection as well as the Bergen County Health Department/Bergen County Hazmat is continuing to monitor the air quality in and around the scene of the fire as well as into the residential neighborhood adjacent to Marcal.
Additionally, Marcal has retained an environmental company to oversee the process from their side of things who will remain engaged and retained the throughout the entire process.
There are multiple layers of monitoring and oversite involved in this operation that will remain in place until the site is remediated.
To date, air quality readings in and around the area are normal. Monitoring is being conducted regularly and residents will be made aware immediately, if air quality readings become abnormal.
Please feel free to contact my office if you have any questions or concerns.
Chief of Police / Borough Administrator
