ENB - REGION 1 NOTICES

Public Notice

The Department of Environmental Conservation has determined that the Registry of Inactive Hazardous Waste Disposal Sites in New York State needs to be amended to delete site number 152117, known as the John Kohilakis Property Site. This site is located in the Town of Smithtown in the County of Suffolk and is located at 367 Lincoln Boulevard, Hauppauge, NY. The reason for deletion is:

A small portion of this site was used for shredded auto waste and other debris. Most of the site has been graded and covered with fill. In 1981, a waste sample failed the EP Toxicity test for lead. A groundwater sample was retrieved from an on-site well which was in a location which is likely to intercept contamination which may be emanating from the fill area. Results showed the groundwater was non-detectable for lead.

Based on the results of the investigations and sampling conducted at this site, the disposal of hazardous waste is considered inconsequential and the site will be removed from the Registry.

Written comments on this proposed deletion are welcome, and should be sent to:

Project Manager: Ms. Elaine Zuk
NYSDEC
Division of Environmental Remediation
50 Wolf Road, Room 248
Albany, NY 12233-7010

All written comments must be received by September 9, 2000. A summary of all written comments will be assembled and a summary will be available for viewing at our Region 1 Headquarters in Stony Brook, NY.
