Project Title: Buffalo Business Park, V-00663-9

Project Location: Region: 9; 1800 Broadway, City of Buffalo; Erie County

Project Description: From 1900 to 1950 the Buffalo Business Park complex was an industrial area used primarily by the Pullman Car Company. Since 1950 the area has been used for parking by various businesses. The area of concern is currently a parking area about one acre in size and is within this business complex.

Environmental investigations of the property, completed by the Volunteer between March 2001 and May 2002, found that soil and groundwater in the parking lot area are contaminated with solvents such as perchloroethylene, trichloroethylene, and their related compounds. The source of the contamination is unknown and is presumed to be from an historical spill.

Under the Voluntary Cleanup Agreement, the volunteer plans to further investigate and delineate the contaminated area. Based upon this information, the soils will be excavated and the area backfilled with clean gravel fill. The excavated contaminated soils will be placed in an above-ground soil vapor extraction (SVE) system. The system will be located on the east side of the complex property and will include vapor treatment prior to discharge. The SVE system will operate until the system has removed the contaminants and cleanup goals are met.
