Public Notice

Region 1 - 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 130043V, known as the Tishcon Corporation - New York Avenue Site. This site is located in the Village of Westbury, Town of North Hempstead, in the County of Nassau, and is located at 29 New York Avenue. The reason for deletion is:

In August 2001, an Interim Remedial Measure (IRM) removed volatile organic compounds and metal contamination from the on-site dry well. End point samples confirmed the successful remediation of the dry well by revealing that the remaining soils were below appropriate Guidance Values. The investigations conducted at the site also revealed that the current on-site groundwater contamination was due to an up-gradient source. Based on the results of the investigations and the IRM that have been performed at this site, the NYSDEC has selected "No Further Action" as the preferred remedial alternative for this site, and is proposing to delist this site from the New York State Registry of Inactive Hazardous Waste Sites.

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

Project Manager: Joseph Jones, New York State Environmental Conservation, Division of Environmental Remediation, 625 Broadway, 11th Floor, Albany, NY 12233-7015

All written comments must be received by November 30, 2002. A summary of all written comments will be assembled and a summary will be available for viewing at our Region 1 Headquarters in Stony Brook, NY.
