The latest site activities have included continued preliminary Deep Soil Mixing (DSM) field testing while modifications to the drilling equipment and procedures for Deep Soil Mixing (DSM) continue to be evaluated. Preparations for the relocation with a crane of the Temporary Containment Building were completed and the building was relocated to the fourth excavation area and re-stabilized for safety. No excavation or transportation and disposal activities took place.

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.
