Project Description: The applicant has requested an Environmental Conservation Law Article 24 Freshwater Wetland Permit pursuant to 6 NYCRR Part 663, and a Water Quality Certification pursuant to 6 NYCRR Part 608, to allow for adult vector mosquito control activities by spraying the insecticide Anvil 10 + 10 ULV, EPA Registration No. 1021-1688-8329, in certain areas within the limits of New York City under DEC's jurisdiction in certain specific circumstances during the 2001 mosquito season.

Public Notice

Project Title: Availability of Voluntary Cleanup Project Work Plan for Comment
Popular Hand Laundry, V00170-2
Agreement No. W2-0813-98-06

Project Location: 88 Ingraham Street, Brooklyn, NY, 11237
Kings County, DEC Region2, New York City
The property is located on the southerly side of Ingraham Street, between Knickerbocker and Porter Avenues, at 88 Ingraham Street. The property is approximately 75 feet wide and 100 feet deep, with a two-story building and an attached one-story garage occupying most of the land area.

Brief Project Description: The property is currently a vacant commercial laundry facility. Operations at the site had previously included dry cleaning, but this use has been discontinued. Investigation of the property by the volunteers has identified contamination in subsurface soils and groundwater with the dry cleaning chemical tetrachloroethylene and its breakdown products. Contaminants in site soils are present at concentration above NYSDEC recommended cleanup objectives, and in site groundwater at concentrations significantly above NYSDEC Class GA groundwater standards. The Volunteers propose to install an air sparging groundwater remediation system, a soil vapor extraction system, and a groundwater monitoring system.

Comment Period: The Agreement and Work Plan for the Site are available for review at the location below. The public is invited to review the Agreement and Work Plan and submit written comments to the contact person within 30 days following the date of this notice. Written comments expressing objection or opposition to the Work Plan must explain the basis of the opposition, and identify the specific grounds which could lead the Department to impose significant changes to the Work Plan. No formal response is made to comments received, but as a result of comments, the Department may reevaluate and revise the Work Plan.
