Chambers Works FUSRAP Site

Areas within the Chemours site (formerly known as DuPont Chambers Works) in Deepwater, New Jersey are being investigated and cleaned up under the Formerly Utilized Sites Remedial Action Program (FUSRAP). The Department of Energy (DOE) created FUSRAP to address radiological contamination at sites used by DOE’s predecessor agencies, the Manhattan Engineer District (MED) and the Atomic Energy Commission (AEC) from the 1940s through the 1960s.

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE), Philadelphia District, has completed a five-year review of the Chemours Chambers Works FUSRAP Site in Deepwater, New Jersey. The purpose of a five-year review is to determine if the remedy is and will continue to protect human health and the environment. The results of the five-year review indicate that the site remedy will be protective of human health and the environment upon completion. In the interim, remedial activities completed to date have adequately addressed all exposure pathways that could result in unacceptable risks in these areas.

What is FUSRAP?

During the 1940s, 1950s, and 1960s, work was performed at sites throughout the United States as part of the nation's early atomic energy program. Some sites' activities can be traced back as far as World War II and the Manhattan Engineer District (MED); other sites were involved in peacetime activities under the Atomic Energy Commission (AEC). Both MED and AEC were predecessors of DOE.
