Hempstead Intersection Street Former MGP Site -
Remedial Progress

Week Ending March 22, 2013

The latest site activities continued with Deep Soil Mixing (DSM), importation of supplies for the DSM work, and excavation and off-site transportation of soils continuing over the next few weeks. Additionally, work has begun on importing clean fill for backfilling previously completed remediation areas, and.this work will continue into the coming months. The Intersection Street site entrance was recently closed temporarily to help complete the project work on-site, and all delivery vehicles and site personnel will now be using the Second Street site access gate until the Intersection Street entrance is reopened in April.

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.
