The New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection has sent letters to federal agencies in an attempt to stop the flow of water from the GEMS Landfill water to Camden County's sewers. The DEP, in letters to the federal Environmental Protection Agency and Nuclear Regulatory Commission, questions whether the radionuclides in the water are naturally occurring, as the EPA contends, or if it could potentially have come from industrial sources. The DEP has also requested that the Camden County Municipal Utilities Authority delay accepting the wastewater until the issue is resolved. The discharge from the federal Superfund site is scheduled to begin before the end of the year.
