Rig in position to begin full scale DSM work

The latest site activities have included soil excavation and off-site transportation and disposal. Other activities included the pre-clearing of piping and debris prior to solidification activities along the west portion of the site. Delivery of components and construction of cement batch plant #2 and assembly of the 2nd drill rig for soil solidification will continue. One of the Deep Soil Mixing (DSM) drilling rigs was repositioned in advance of starting the full scale soil solidification work.

A Fact Sheet summarizing the project and potential impacts to the community was previously sent to the community to summarize the work. The Fact Sheet and the finalized Remedial Action Work Plan can also be found in the Key Documents/Major Reports section of this website. A link to the Fact Sheet can be found below. The work is being performed in accordance with the Community Air Monitoring Plan that was reviewed by the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation, New York State Department of Health and the Nassau County Department of Health. There is an on-site NYSDEC representative monitoring the project activities.

As work proceeds, the web site will be updated periodically to ensure the community is informed of the project progress and schedule.
