Engineers: New Jersey Entertainment Complex Site Is Contaminated

January 16, 2009

A report says the site of the giant Xanadu shopping and entertainment center under construction in the Meadowlands is contaminated.

A project engineer says the environmental hazards could remain.

The report, first described in The Record of Bergen County, says the East Rutherford complex has leaking fuel tanks and underground pools of water with elevated levels of cancer-causing compounds.

The engineer doesn’t expect to submit a plan to clean up water at the center until after its planned opening in August.

A spokesman for the New Jersey Sports and Exposition Authority, which owns the Xanadu site, says the complex will be safe for workers and shoppers.
