ENB - Region 7 Notices 04/21/2010

Public Notice

Voluntary Cleanup Program

Availability of Proposed Remedial Action Plan for Comment

Name of Volunteer: Aramark Uniform Services LLC

Site Name: Aramark Uniform Services LLC

Site No.: V00665

Lead Agency: New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (NYS DEC)

Project Location: Town of Geddes, Village of Solvay, 3009 and 3117 Milton Avenue.

Project History and Conditions: The site is on a .75 acre parcel, the surrounding area is mixed commercial and residential properties. Residences were located on the property until the mid 20th century, when the site was converted to an automotive repair garage. After 1953, the site was converted to a laundry with both water washing and dry cleaning operations. Dry cleaning operations were discontinued prior to 2003 (exact date is unknown). In October 2003, a voluntary clean up agreement was executed with the Department to investigate and remediate soil and groundwater contamination, discovered during a recently completed limited environmental site assessment. A remedial investigation was conducted between 2004 and 2006, which showed the contaminants of concern (volatile organic compounds and sem-volatile organic compounds) had decreased significantly, but still exceeded groundwater standards. It also showed a potential for soil vapor intrusion. Public comment period for the Proposed Remedial Action Work plan runs from April 21, 2010 to May 21, 2010.

Description of the Proposed Remedial Action: The proposed remedy consists of design and construction of a sub-slab vapor mitigation system, and a groundwater monitoring program, including installation of 2 new monitoring wells, preparation of a site management plan, and implementation of a deed restriction to restrict future use of the property to commercial or industrial use, and restrict the use of on-site groundwater.

Contemplated Use of the Site is continued use as a Laundry Operation.

Comment Period: Public comment period for the Proposed Remedial Action Work plan runs from April 21, 2010 to May 21, 2010.
