The latest site activities include Deep Soil Mixing (DSM) solidification activities. Deliveries of DSM materials and backfill will take place on a regular basis going forward. Upcoming site activities will be more focused on the DSM solidification work with less excavation. DSM spoils removal, transportation and disposal work will take place the week of September 17 on a small scale for 2-3 days.

A spring 2012 Project Update Fact Sheet was mailed out to the Community to provide a project schedule update and a summary of the ongoing remediation work. This 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.
