ENB - Region 8 Notices 12/24/2008

Public Notice

Voluntary Cleanup Agreement

Notice of Availability for Comment


Site Number: VCP # V00658-8

Name of Volunteer: Antonio Gabriele and Joseph Ognibene

Project Location: The property is the former Churchville Ford facility located at 111 South Main Street, in the Village of Churchville, Monroe County, New York. The Churchville Ford site is located in a commercial and residential area. The property was used for agriculture until 1986 when it was developed as an automobile dealership. The facility initially operated as Gabriele Ford and later as Churchville Ford. The site was vacant from approximately 2001 until 2004 when Meyer's Campers purchased the site. The site is currently owned by Meyer's at Churchville, LLC and is occupied by Mark's Truck and Boat Center.

Project Description: Chemical contamination was discovered at the site in 2002 during an environmental investigation conducted as part of the property transfer. In 2003, Antonio Gabriele and Joseph Ognibene entered the Voluntary Cleanup Program and conducted a remedial investigation. The remedial investigation indicated that chlorinated solvents, particularly tetrachloroethene and trichloroethene, were present at slightly elevated levels in groundwater, sub-slab soil vapor, and indoor air at the site. The areas of greatest impact were located outside the western section of the main building where an above-ground storage tank and a solvent storage area were previously located. Additionally, the extent of impacted groundwater and soil vapor also appears to be limited to a fairly small portion of the site.

The proposed remedy involves in situ chemical oxidation of the source area using sodium permanganate. Use restrictions will also be placed on the property. The State welcomes public input into this proposed plan. A Remedial Action Work Plan explains the proposed plan in more detail. You can review the Remedial Action Work Plan, along with the site investigation report, at the locations listed below.

Comment Period: Written comments on the Remedial Action Work Plan must be received within 30 days following the date of this Notice. Written comments expressing objections or opposition to the Remedial Action Work Plan must explain the basis of the opposition and identify the specific grounds which could justify the Department's imposing significant changes to the Remedial Action Work Plan. No formal response is made to comments, but as a result of comments, the Department may reevaluate and revise the Remedial Action Work Plan.
