Hempstead Intersection Street Former MGP Site -
Remedial Progress

Week Ending March 29, 2013

The latest site activities continued with excavation, transportation and disposal of soils continuing over the next few weeks. Additionally, work has begun on importing clean fill for backfilling of previous DSM completed area, this work to continue through the summer months. Due to the recent closure of the Intersection Street site entrance to help complete the project work on-site, all delivery vehicles and site personnel will need to utilize the Second Street site access gate for the next few weeks. The temporary containment building disassembly was also completed and it was removed from the Site during the week.

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