Hempstead Intersection Street Former MGP Site -
Remedial Progress

Week Ending September 20, 2013

The latest site activities include the completion of the Deep Soil Mixing (DSM) remediation work which ended with the last location under the power lines. LIPA crews will be preparing to restore the electrical clearances in this area starting around September 20th with some weekend work required. Transportation of materials for offsite disposal will be sporadic going forward. Importation of clean fill materials for backfilling operations will continue for the next few weeks as well as the importation of stone for site restoration. Demobilization of the remediation equipment will start soon and is anticipated to continue for a month or so, during this time there will be large trucks used to move the equipment and materials from the site. Some of the demobilization work may require some weekend activity to facilitate the 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.

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.
