INTRODUCTION
The Diamond Alkali Project Team (Project Team), comprised
of representatives of former operators and owners of the Diamond
Alkali facility at 80 Lister Avenue in Newark, New Jersey, voluntarily
initiated an environmental study of Newark Bay in 1990. The study
centers on the Newark Bay and its tributaries (Estuary), with a par-
ticular emphasis on the lower Passaic River (River), and continues
under the oversight of the United States Environmental Protection
Agency (EPA). The study has fostered an improved understanding
of sediment and water quality and has provided additional data on

30, 1998. At that time, the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA)
was still considering how the dioxin contamination at the Diamond Alkali Super-
fund Site would be remedied. Prior to the publication of this journal, however, the
EPA gave final approval to a 1990 consent decree, which permits the on-site burial
of dioxin waste at the Diamond Alkali site. See Tom Johnson, Dioxin Site in Newark to
be Sealed Underground, STAR-LEDGER (Newark), Aug. 5, 1998, at 15.
