The New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection has suspended work on the construction of 15 luxury homes on a 45-acre site near the former Combe Landfill Superfund site in Chester Township. The state has asked the company to halt any additional construction activities until the DEP finishes its investigation of the deep aquifer beneath the site. In studies last year by the DEP and the developer's expert, Environmental Liability Management, volatile organic contaminants were found in 14 of 15 wells at a variety of depths, according to the DEP.
