The latest site activities have included relocating the temporary containment building and off-site transportation and disposal of the excavated soil. Deep soil mixing (DSM) production work was initiated along the west fence line. Other activities included continued pre-clearing of piping and debris to facilitate DSM activities along the west and north portions of the site. Delivery of components and construction of DSM batch plant #2 and assembly of the 2nd DSM drill rig will continue.

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.
