Remedial Action Work Plan

Project Title: Voluntary Cleanup Program 'Remedial Action Selection Report and Remedial Action Work Plan,' Con Edison West 18th Street MGP, VCP Site No. V-00530-3 for comment.

Project Location: 524 W. 19th Street, New York, New York

Brief Project Description: The site is approximately 4,500 square foot, with an existing building covering virtually the entire lot at this time. This site was a storage yard for the West 18th Street Gas Works. This plant operated from 1834 until approximately 1902. The gas plant was closed and the properties were sold off in the 1910's. While there is no record of MGP structures located on this site, significant MGP contamination has been found in the subsurface. The contemplated use of the site is a multistory (currently assumed to be 10 story) residential and commercial building. The foundation of the building will cover the entire lot and will accommodate a full basement. The basement and first floor will be commercial space (an art gallery initially), with residential space in the floors above.

A site characterization for the West 18th Street Gas Works was completed as described in the January 2006 Site Characterization Study Report. Significant amounts of coal tar were found.

The proposed remedy at this site will include:

• Installation of a low permeability (less than 1x10-6 centimeters per second) containment barrier around the perimeter of the site. Materials and construction techniques will be detailed in the Site Operations Plan.

• Excavation to a depth of 14 feet below ground surface.

• Installation of a two foot thick cement bentonite "mud slab" over the entire site at the bottom of the excavation. This slab will be keyed into or placed over the vertical barrier wall.

• Air monitoring consistent with the "Community Air Monitoring Plan" will be carried out during all site work to ensure that excess dust and vapors are not released off-site.

• All work will be done in such a way as to avoid strong or persistent odors in addition to meeting the requirements of the NYSDOH approved Community Air Monitoring Plan.
