Availability Of The Draft Remedial Action Plan (RAP)

Lead Agency: NYSDEC

County: Suffolk County

Project Title: Availability of the draft Remedial Action Plan (RAP) for the Former Bay Shore Manufactured Gas Plant (MGP) Site for Comment. A public meeting was earlier held on May 12, 2004. Site No: 1-52-172

Project Location: Bay Shore, Town of Islip, Suffolk County, New York, NYSDEC Region 1. The Site is bisected by Clinton Avenue in Bay Shore.

Brief Project Description: The site, which is approximately 10 acres in area, is the location of the former Bay Shore Manufactured Gas Plant. By-products from the plant operation have leaked into the environment resulting in soil and groundwater contamination. The draft Remedial Action Plan to clean up the site includes removal of heavily contaminated soils, treatment of the residual source materials using in-situ chemical oxidation, recovery of non-aqueous phase liquid by recovery wells where feasible, construction of a subsurface barrier wall at the downgradient perimeter of the site and implementing institutional controls and a site management plan to limit future exposures.
