ENB - Region 1 Notices

Public Notice

Voluntary Cleanup Program
Availability for Comment

Name of Volunteer: Mr. Stanley Yoel

Site Name and Number: Burton Industries, Inc. #V00239-1

Project Location: Region 1, Suffolk County, Town of Babylon, Village of Wyandanch

Project Description: The site is approximately 1.8 acres in size and is located in a mixed industrial/commercial setting. The facility prepares metallic components for the aeronautics industry. Solvents which were used to clean these products were found in an on-site leaching pool. The leaching pool was removed and 18 cubic yards of contaminated soil was excavated and disposed of off-site at North East Environmental Services Inc, in Canastota, New York, a permitted disposal facility. As a result of source remediation, both on-site soil and groundwater have been found to meet the recommended soil cleanup objectives and the New York State Groundwater Standards, respectively. Soil gas samples collected from beneath the facility foundation and adjacent to the leaching pool have been found to contain elevated levels of volatile organic compounds. An active sub-slab depressurization system is proposed to be constructed to capture soil gas, treat it, then discharge it to the atmosphere.

Comment Period: The draft remedial action work plan is available for review at the document repositories listed below. Written comments will be accepted for 30 days following the date of this notice. Written comments can be sent to the attention of the NYSDEC project manager listed below. The Department may make revisions to the work plan if any significant new information is received regarding the proposed remediation.
