PROJECT SUMMARIES

XIA-218 - This investigation area is located in northeastern Kodak Park Section X (KPX). KPX is bounded to the east by the Kodak Park Section called KPW, to the west by Mount Read Boulevard, to the north by Ridge Road, and to the south by Ramona Park and Wheatland Street. XIA-218 includes the Building 218 (B-218) hazardous waste incinerator; several related storage areas for solid and liquid hazardous wastes; and Building 206 (B-206). Since 1989, Kodak has conducted many hydrogeologic investigations in this area, and has also implemented several interim corrective measures to control and recover contaminated groundwater. Kodak has completed a corrective measures study evaluating remedial alternatives for groundwater and soil at the site. The Department has tentatively selected the remedy for XIA-218 described below:

MIA-351 - This investigation area covers approximately 9 acres and is located in the north central part of Kodak Park Section M (KPM). KPM is bounded by Mount Read Boulevard to the east, Interstate 390 to the west, the Koda Vista neighborhood to the north, and approximately Ridgeway Avenue to the south. MIA-351 contains the Building 351/Building 352 (B-351/352) polyester recovery operation, that includes storage facilities for solid and liquid hazardous wastes and a distillation complex. Since 1989, Kodak has conducted many hydrogeologic investigations in this area, and has also implemented several interim corrective measures to control and recover contaminated groundwater. Kodak prepared a presumptive remedy report evaluating remedial alternatives for groundwater and soil at the site. The Department has tentatively selected the remedy for MIA-351 described below:

These actions constitute the proposed final corrective action remedy for these investigation areas.

Pursuant to Part 617 of the New York State regulations for Article 8 [the State Environmental Quality Review Act (SEQR)], NYSDEC has determined that the proposed action, described above, is an unlisted action and will not have a significant effect on the environment. A Negative Declaration is on file for this action.
