The Campagnolo Property site (#7-55-013) is located near the intersection of N. Meadow Street and Esty Street in the City of Ithaca, Tompkins County, New York. Currently there is a two-story concrete building on the site. The building is a slab-on-grade structure approximately 3,200 square feet in size. The building is currently leased for various commercial services. Asphalt and/or concrete paved parking surfaces surround the building on all sides. Surrounding land uses include commercial (banking, restaurants, offices), parking and housing
A dry cleaning service operated at the site from the late 1960s to 1977. An approximately 18-pound dry cleaning machine was located in the building, and an aboveground solvent tank was formerly located outside on the east side of the building. Tetrachloroethene (PCE) had previously been used in the dry cleaning operations as a cleaning solvent. Releases of dry cleaning solvents likely occurred as isolated instances of leaks from dry cleaning equipment.
NYSDEC reclassified the site from Class 2 (significant threat to public health or environment - action required) to Class 4 (site properly closed - requires continued management) in November 2012. A fact sheet explaining that clean up requirements at the site have been achieved is attached below under "Documents".
