Site Location:
The Site is in NYSDEC Region 3 along Highview Avenue in the Town of Orangetown, Rockland County, New York. It is a six-acre lot referred to as the "Triangle Parcel" which is a part of the former Orangeburg Pipe Manufacturing Facility. Tax map identification #74.15-1-2.

Site History:
This site was the former location of a portion of the Orangeburg Manufacturing Company facility, which produced Orangeburg pipe. The Orangeburg Manufacturing Company and its predecessor, Fibre Conduit Company, produced Orangeburg pipe (OP) at the site from approximately 1893 until 1958. Flintkote Corporation acquired the property in 1958 and continued to produce OP at the facility until the plant closed in 1973.

Prior to 1946, Orangeburg pipe was manufactured by impregnating paper fiber cylinders with coal tar pitch. From 1946 to 1970, a paper/asbestos mixture was used to make the cylinders. After 1970, wollastonite (a fibrous, magnesium oxide mineral) was used in place of asbestos. For a short time in the later years of production, the facility also produced polyvinyl chloride (PVC) pipe. In addition to the materials used to produce the pipe, the site reportedly contained fuel oil and/or gasoline underground storage tanks (USTs) in the northern portion of the site.

Investigation & Remediation:
Petroleum-related compounds were present in soil at concentrations exceeding the STARS Guidance Values for Fuel Oil-Contaminated Soil, as well as in a buried pipe that contained a highly viscous, black material presumed to be asphaltic coal tar, and in water that exhibited a strong asphalt-like odor and oily sheen. Analytical results of liquid derived from the pipe indicate the presence of 1,1,1-trichloroethane ("TCA"), 1,1- and 1,2-dichloroethane and lead at concentrations exceeding the NYSDEC Division of Water "Technical and Operational Guidance Series 1.1.1: Ambient Water Quality Standards and Guidance Values and Groundwater Effluent Limitations." The organic compounds detected in the water from the pipe (TCA, 1,1-DCA, and 1,2-DCA) were not detected in groundwater samples collected from the site.

The Remedial Workplan outlines the methods which will be used to accomplish the following remedial actions:

Installation of a trench to capture, to pump, and to treat impacted groundwater; or

installation of a treatment barrier, such as a series of oxygen-releasing compound (ORC) wells, to treat groundwater in situ.

Contemplated Use:
The "Triangle Parcel" will be used as a parking lot for an adjacent retail property.

Notice of Acceptance of Final EIS

Westchester County - The Planning Board of the Town/Village of Mount Kisco, as lead agency, has accepted a Final Environmental Impact Statement on the proposed Manufacturers Outlet Center Improvements Site Plan. The action involves the renovation and rehabilitation of the existing Manufacturers Outlet Center which includes the construction of a new satellite building of approximately 12,000 square feet gross floor area. As part of the proposed action, the footprint of the existing building will be enlarged by approximately 18,000 square feet and a substantial portion of the second floor mezzanine of the existing building will be removed with the consequence that the gross floor area of the entire project site will be reduced from approximately 242,961 square feet to 217,146 square feet. The existing parking lot will be repaved and restriped to create 866 parking spaces. The project is located on the west side of North Bedford Road (NYS Route 117) at the intersection of Preston Way in the Town/Village of Mount Kisco.
