Conceptual Interim Remedial Measures Work Plan, February 2001

Name of Volunteer: 41 Saxon Avenue Corporation

Site Name and No.: 41 Saxon Avenue (Former Staver Site), Site No. V00338-1

Project Location: 41 Saxon Avenue, Bay Shore, NY
Suffolk County, NYSDEC Region 1

Project Description: The 41 Saxon Avenue Corp. has voluntarily agreed to perform an interim remedial measure (IRM) to provide timely remediation of soils and groundwater contamination at the 41 Saxon Avenue site by chlorinated solvents consisting primarily of tetrachloroethene with lower concentrations of trichloroethene and 1,1,1-trichloroethane. The proposed remedy includes the following:

The proposed IRM will be implemented after the completion of a voluntary investigation. The conceptual IRM work plan presents the conceptual design for the IRM. The conceptual design is based on data from previous investigations. A pilot test will be required for the proposed IRM treatment system to ensure that it will work well under the existing site conditions. After the pilot test, a Final Design for the proposed treatment system will be prepared to provide specific details on the actual design for the SVE and air sparging systems. This detailed design will consider the new data from the voluntary investigation and the results of the pilot test. The proposed air sparge/soil vapor extraction systems have been shown to be effective on similar sites which have the same contaminants and environmental conditions as the 41 Saxon Avenue site.

Comment Period: The Conceptual IRM Work Plan, February, 2001 is available for review at the locations below. Written comments on this work plan and the proposed remedy will be accepted for 30 days following the date of this notice. Written comments expressing objection or opposition to the project must explain the basis of that 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 re-evaluate and make revisions to the work plan.
