85 Willow Street Site Remediation and Restoration Project

Welcome to the website for the remediation and restoration project at 85 Willow Street in East Rutherford, NJ. Equilon Enterprises LLC dba Shell Oil Products US (Shell) is conducting an ongoing environmental investigation and remediation and is expected to begin the next phase in 2023.

The purpose of the remediation is to remove impacted soils and replace it with clean fill  at depths between 1 to 12 feet below ground surface onsite.

This work is anticipated to take approximately 3-4 months to complete, from mobilization through restoration.

Community Updates – March 16, 2023
For the upcoming soil remediation at 85 Willow Street in East Rutherford, Shell is required by the Borough of East Rutherford to perform a drone survey to document the conditions of Willow Street pre- and post-remediation. A copy of this report will be provided to the Borough.  

On Thursday, March 16, a trained drone technician will perform this work, starting around 8:30 a.m. and taking about an hour to complete. The technician will always be able to see the drone and will observe it from the sidewalk or the street right of way.  

The drone also will measure the elevation of adjacent properties compared to the 85 Willow Street  property as well as the proximity of any structures to the proposed work. To ensure the accuracy of the measurements, water soluble paint will be used to establish markers on the ground at specified locations on Atkins Terrace, Willow Wood Court, and Willow Street. The markings look similar to a utility mark out.
