Hempstead Intersection Street Former MGP Site -
Remedial Progress

Week Ending February 24, 2012

Areas 1-3 post excavation, pre-ISS and regrading
Area 5 excavation progress
New Hydrant

The latest site activities have included continued preliminary Deep Soil Mixing (DSM) field testing while modifications to the drilling equipment and procedures for DSM continue to be evaluated. After the tent was relocated, excavation work began in areas 4 and 5 and excavated soil and debris were loaded for transportation and disposal. A fire hydrant located west of the Site was relocated to the north to move it out of the remediation area, and the area where the temporary parking lot will be constructed.

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.
