Operable Unit 2 Remedial Action Work Plan

Name of Volunteer: Sid Harvey Industries, Inc.

Site Name and No.: Sid Harvey Industries, Site No. V00145-1

Project Location: 100 East Mineola Avenue, Valley Stream
Nassau County, NYSDEC Region 1

Project Description: Sid Harvey Industries, Inc. reconditions and rebuilds pumps, motors and controls for oil-fired boilers. The facility is located at 100 East Mineola Avenue, Valley Stream on an approximately 1 acre property. The facility was constructed around the 1940s.

Environmental Investigations at the site confirmed that there are impacts to the subsurface soil, soil gas, and groundwater beneath the Sid Harvey Industries facility from past use of cleaning solvents at this facility. The investigations have also confirmed contamination from an apparent off-site and unrelated gasoline spill which is migrating via groundwater onto the site. The source of the dissolved gasoline plume is presently unknown. NYSDEC is independently investigating the source of the gasoline contamination. Reports describing the results of on-site and off-site investigations are available at the locations identified below.

The planned work will actively clean up the identified contaminated groundwater and saturated soil contamination below the water table. An existing operational SVE system is addressing unsaturated soil and soil gas. This work is being performed voluntarily by Sid Harvey Industries under the NYSDEC Voluntary Cleanup Program (VCP).

The Proposed Action: The groundwater and saturated soil cleanup will consist of installation of an air sparge system for groundwater to 60 feet below ground surface (BGS) and pilot testing of enhanced reductive dechlorination using hydrogen release compound® (HRC) for groundwater from 60 to 90 feet BGS. The remedy will also include various institutional and engineering controls. The work plan, which describes the cleanup method in detail, is available at the document repositories listed below.

Comment Period: The Operable Unit 2 Air Sparge System Remedial Action Work Plan, October 2004, 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 reevaluate and make revisions to the work plan.
