Voluntary Cleanup Interim Remedial Measure Work Plan

Name of Volunteer: Gibson and Cushman Dredging Company

Site Name and No.: Gibson and Cushman Dredging Company, Site No. V00352–1

Project Location: 38 Homan Avenue
Bay Shore, New York
Suffolk County
NYSDEC Region 1

Project Description: The Gibson and Cushman Dredging Company, LLC (GCD) site is less than 2 acres in size and is currently owned by GCD. The facility has been used to repair and store dredging equipment and boats used during dredging operations for approximately 80 years. GCD has owned the property for approximately 75 years.

Environmental investigations at the site have identified soils contaminated with RCRA metals and petroleum hydrocarbons. In 1997, Roux Associates conducted a limited Environmental Phase II Environmental Site Investigation (ESI) of the property and in 1999 Anson Environmental Ltd. (AEL) conducted additional Phase II ESI activities, which included soil sampling. In 2001, AEL performed additional soil sampling. These investigations revealed that soils in the northern parcel have a moderate amount of non-hazardous petroleum hydrocarbon and metals contamination, and soils located in the southern parcel contain metals contamination.

Proposed Action: The vertical extent of the cleanup will be defined by collecting endpoint samples of soils for laboratory analysis for RCRA metals, plus copper and zinc (Suffolk County metals listing). Endpoint samples will be collected after a two foot thick increment of soil is excavated. Soil will be excavated to a depth such that the remaining soils will meet the New York State Recommended Soil Cleanup Objectives (RSCO). The horizontal limit of the excavation will be determined by the location of the bulkhead on the eastern and southern sides of the property and the property lines on the western and northern sides.

As soil is excavated from the site, it will be stockpiled on plastic on-site and the excavated material will be sampled and analyzed for RCRA metals to determine if it is contaminated. If the total of any one of the eight RCRA metals exceeds the RSCO for that metal, the soil will be re-sampled for disposal purposes and that soil will be disposed of off-site. If laboratory analysis determines that the soil meets that RSCO for all the RCRA metals, plus copper and zinc, it will be used as backfill for the excavation on-site.

Once the excavation reaches a depth of approximately two feet below grade, endpoint samples will be collected and submitted for laboratory analysis for RCRA metals, plus copper and zinc. If laboratory analytical data indicate that the endpoint soil samples meet the RSCOs for each of the metals, excavation in that area will be stopped. If the endpoint samples do not meet the RSCOs, additional soils will be excavated and deeper endpoint samples collected until the RSCOs are met.

At the northern parcel, the soil contaminated with volatiles organic compounds is discolored and is black. This contaminated soil will be excavated until the discolored soils have been removed and the field readings on the PID reach background levels for volatile organic compounds.

Comment Period: The Voluntary Cleanup Interim Remedial Measure Work Plan, July 2005, 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.
