Name: Matthew Trochim

Project Site: Pohatcong Valley Superfund Site

Project Title: Out of Sight, Out of Mind: How the Public Awareness of Contamination Affected Cleanup Efforts in the Pohatcong Valley Groundwater Superfund Site from 1978 to 2020

Interview Description:

In this interview I talked to my mother, Bonnie Trochim, who has been living in the Pohatcong Valley Superfund site since 1992. I asked her a variety of questions about her personal experiences living in the site and about the community as a whole to get insight into the way the community on the ground learned about and reacted to the contamination.
