Public Notice

Notice of Selection of Final Corrective Measures with Groundwater Monitoring and Natural Attenuation

USEPA ID No.: NYD054065909

NYSDEC Permit No. 3-3924-00025-00107

FACILITY: WYETH PHARMACEUTICALS' 401 North Middletown Road, Pearl River, Rockland Co. New York 10965

This large pharmaceutical plant is located in Pearl River on a 500-acre site. This site was first used as a dairy farm prior to being purchased by Lederle in 1907, with the subsequent erection of a plant for the manufacture of serums and other pharmaceutical antitoxins.

During the over one hundred years of the plant?s existence, many more buildings and process facilities were constructed on this site to support the production of more pharmaceutical products and to conduct medical and pharmaceutical research. American Cyanamid Company purchased this facility in 1930, American Home Products purchased this facility in 1995, later changing its name to Wyeth Pharmaceuticals.

PROJECT SUMMARY: Several chlorinated and non-chlorinated volatile organic constituents (VOCs) and Semi volatile organic constituents (SVOCs) were detected in the groundwater at this site in the 1980's. VOCs included acetone, benzene, carbon disulfide, dichloroethene (DCE), tetrachloroethene (PCE), toluene, trichloroethene (TCE), chorobenzene and xylene.

The Wyeth Pharmaceuticals facility and the surrounding areas are serviced by a public water system. The primary source of water is Lake Deforest, which is in a completely different watershed in Norther Rockland County. A few contaminants were found in upgradient wells. Higher concentrations of VOCs and SVOCs were detected in onsite wells and immediately downgradient of the closed landfills. Wyeth has proposed that the concentrations of contaminants will be naturally attenuated by the time they reach the property boundary. This possibility has been investigated with the installation and sampling of additional monitoring wells under the Part 373 Permit. After a five year study, the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation determined that the observed concentration of hazardous constituents in the groundwater is slightly above New York State groundwater quality standards. Based upon this data and related computer models, the Department has determined that natural attenuation of the groundwater contamination is occurring at the facility and that active remediation of the contamination is not necessary at this time. Furthermore, the consistency of the groundwater quality data is such that it is reasonable to predict that contaminant concentrations will continue to decline. Since the data show that the groundwater is not yet meeting NY State Standards, continued monitoring is needed to confirm that the currently observed plume of contamination does not represent a significant threat to human health or the environment. TENTATIVE DETERMINATION: The purpose of the monitoring program is to track changes in the low level concentrations of groundwater contaminants which have been observed at the site. Based on the groundwater data collected during the five year study, the NYSDEC has tentatively determined that the groundwater contamination has diminished to the point that a program of natural attenuation with continued groundwater monitoring will be protective of human health and the environment.
