Hudson Generating Station has 9 groundwater monitoring wells, 8 of which have been polluted above federal advisory levels based on samples collected between July 30, 2018 and December 04, 2018. Groundwater at this site contains unsafe levels of lithium, radium, barium, cobalt and sulfate.

Site description

The site of Hudson Generating Station, previously owned by Public Service Enterprise Group, is located near the Hackensack River in Jersey City, NJ. The site was sold to Hilco Redevelopment Partners in 2018, who are converting the area into an industrial park. The plant was first commissioned in 1964 and permanently closed in 2017. At the time of retirement, only one 660-MW coal-fired unit was active, though two other units had been shut down previously. The site has three inactive surface impoundments regulated under the CCR rule: the North Ash Pond, the South Ash Pond, and the Bottom Ash Pond. CCR removal from these sites was completed in 2017.
