Availability of Voluntary Cleanup Project Work Plan for Comment

County: Suffolk

Lead Agency: DEC

Project Title: Availability of Voluntary Cleanup Project Work Plan for Comment
45 Kean Street , Site No. V00242-1

Project Location: Region 1, Suffolk County, Town of Babylon, 45 Kean Street, West Babylon

Brief Project Description: The 45 Kean Street site is located on the east side of Kean Street, in the Pinelawn Industrial Area, West Babylon, Town of Babylon, Suffolk County, New York.

The environmental investigations performed over the last seven years have revealed that several on-site dry wells were impacted with volatile organic compounds (VOCs), particularly tetrachloroethene and 1,1,1-trichloroethane. The investigations have also revealed that groundwater at the site has been impacted by VOCs. Groundwater samples have been taken throughout the site at varying depths. VOCs were found to extend vertically to 91 feet below the ground surface.

The Remedial Action Work Plan proposes to remove the VOCs from the groundwater by installing an air sparge/soil vapor extraction system. This system will be installed in the eastern central portion of the subject property near the contaminant source area. The remedial action objective is to eliminate off-site ground water impact from the former on-site source and reduce the on-site concentrations of VOCs to a level based upon contemplated use which is commercial and/or industrial purposes.

In addition to the air sparge/soil vapor extraction system, three multi-level groundwater monitoring wells and four soil gas samples will be installed as part of this work plan. The installation and collection of the soil gas samples is the first step in the remedial action work plan. Results from the groundwater and soil gas sampling will be reviewed prior to the installation of a pilot test for the proposed air sparge/soil vapor extraction system.
