National Grid’s contractor (Entact LLC) started mobilizing for the In-Situ Solidification remediation phase for the Hempstead former Manufactured Gas Plant site on October 3, 2011. The latest site activities have included continued site excavation work and offsite disposal. The equipment testing for the soil solidification work began last week and is ongoing to optimize the mixing process. Off site transportation and disposal is continuing while the solidification testing work is conducted.

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. A Fact Sheet summarizing the project was previously sent to the community to summarize the work. The Fact Sheet and the 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.

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