THE STATE OF NEW JERSEY 

Introduction

             Of all the American States, New Jersey early garnered the reputation of the most industrialized. With advent of environmental remediation, New Jersey also had the statistics to support the greatest number of uncontrolled hazardous waste sites. Much of the eastern half of the State lies on environmentally unfavorable geologic units, with near-surface ground water and porous earth materials.

            New Jersey gas manufacture began in 1846 with Special Act incorporation of the Newark Gas Company. The next following gas plant was at Trenton, with Special Act incorporation by the New Jersey Legislature, in 1847. Thereafter, gas works were created by legislative act at an average rate of about two per year through 1875. In 1846, New Jersey opened up incorporation under its General Laws, averaging several new manufactured gas companies a year until 1899, when 28 such companies were created in one year (Evans, 1948  Table 8).
