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 130076, known as the Ranco Wiping Cloth Site. This site is located in the Village of Freeport, Town of Hempstead, in the County of Nassau, and is located at 409 North Main Street. The reason for deletion is:

An Interim Remedial Measure (IRM) has been completed at this site. Contaminated soils and dry well sediments have been removed to the satisfaction of the DEC. Confirmatory sampling revealed that all hazardous waste has essentially been removed. The results of groundwater sampling revealed that the groundwater has returned to applicable groundwater standards. Residual contamination remaining on-site has been determined to be of an inconsequential nature. There are no known receptors using the groundwater near this site. Based on these findings, the delisting of this site is appropriate.

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

Project Manager: Robert R. Stewart
New York State Department of Environmental Conservation
Region 1
Division of Environmental Remediation
SUNY Campus
Loop Road, Building 40
Stony Brook, NY 11790-2356

All written comments must be received by September 30, 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.
