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 243014, known as the Allied Prince's Bay site. This site is located in the Borough of Staten Island, in the City of New York, in the County of Richmond, and is located at the South Side of Purdy Place between Seguine Avenue and Holton Avenue. The reason for deletion is:

* The site has been remediated as per the Record of Decision issued in March 1997. Between the period of December 1997 and February 2000, approximately 3,232 tons of contaminated soils were removed from the site and disposed off-site as follows:

Excavated areas and Old Lemon Creek have been filled with clean soils. All soils and sediments have been remediated. Post remediation sampling shows that all clean-up objectives have been met and no risk of exposure remains. Groundwater monitoring showed that all levels for site related contaminants were below the Groundwater Cleanup Objectives. The remediation is complete.

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