Hi all. Does anyone know how bad and extensive is the Dupont plume in Pompton Lakes? Are there any updates with a current map? Any insider information? Any information will be greatly appreciated.

I don’t think the footprint of the plume area has ever changed.

It’s a bad situation that has caused health problems for many residents, who lived there while being unknowingly exposed. That said, I don’t think I would be concerned moving there in 2022 (at least due to environmental concerns). The vapor mitigation systems that were installed in plume homes work. It’s the people that were living there in the 00s and earier that have to worry.

My concerns would be financial. This is a situation has been a major drag on real estate values in the town and will be until it’s completely resolved.
