LCP Chemical, Operable Unit No 2
LCP Chemical, Operable Unit 2 Site, located in the Town of Geddes, consists of the former Peroxide Plant portion of the LCP Chemical Site is being proposed for a site clean up by the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation. The Department is also proposing a remedy for a neighboring off-site area referred to as the NAKOH Chemical property. The presence of hazardous waste has created significant threats to human health and/or the environment that are addressed by this proposed remedy. Industrial operations and chemical spills at the site have resulted in the disposal of hazardous wastes, including volatile organic compounds (VOCs), semi-volatile organic compounds (SVOCs) and mercury. These wastes have contaminated the soil and/or groundwater at the site, and have resulted in:
- a significant threat to human health associated with potential exposure to soil and groundwater.
- a significant environmental threat associated with the potential impacts of contaminants to soil and groundwater.
To eliminate or mitigate these threats, the Department proposes in-situ chemical oxidation for on-site soils and groundwater, off-site soil excavation, placement of a 12-inch soil cover on-site and environmental easements with periodic certification. The proposed Remedial Action Plan (PRAP) identifies the preferred remedy, summarizes the other alternatives considered, and discusses the reasons for this preference. The Record of Decision explains the Department's final remedy for the site which was made only after careful consideration of all comments received during the public comment period.
