Hempstead Intersection Street Former MGP Site -
Remedial Progress

Week Ending September 6, 2013

The latest site activities include activities to support the Deep Soil Mixing (DSM) remediation work, and other site preparation, excavation and backfilling work for off-site areas. Deliveries of DSM materials will continue daily throughout the remaining DSM work. Transportation of materials for offsite disposal will be sporadic going forward. The last location for the DSM remediation work will be under the LIPA power lines and LIPA crews will be preparing the electrical clearances for this area starting the week of September 2 and into the coming weeks with some weekend work required too. Once the DSM remediation work starts in this area the work will need to be completed quickly to allow the electrical clearances to be returned as soon as possible- because of these electrical system requirements, the project remediation work will likely be active during one or two weekends this month to facilitate completion of the project.

In addition, trees located around the National Grid Gas regulator station are scheduled to be removed in the coming weeks to prevent any damage to existing gas facilities in the regulator station from wind damaged trees or branches.

The January 2013 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 Project Update mailing 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 website will be updated periodically to ensure the community is informed of the project progress and schedule.
