Levels of carcinogenic benzene 20,000 times greater than regulatory standards had been found in the nearby Raritan River, the EPA reported. As a result, Wyeth Holdings, a subsidiary of Pfizer, will be forced to design and construct a system to prevent contaminated water from seeping into the Raritan, as well as Cuckhold’s Brook and Middle Brook, said Elias Rodriguez, an EPA spokesman.
