DASNY Receives Phase II Environmental Site Assessment

Results of the Phase II Environmental Site Assessment (ESA) were sent to the Dormitory Authority of the State of New York. According to the firm that conducted the ESA, HDR | HydroQual, 21 soil samples were analyzed for pollutants including pesticides. Soil sampling results were compared to New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (NYSDEC) Part 375 Environmental Remediation Program Soil Cleanup Objectives (SCOs) for Unrestricted, Residential and Restricted Residential uses. Arsenic was detected above the NYSDEC Part 375 SCOs for Unrestricted, Residential and Restricted Residential uses in two samples and above the Part 375 SCOs for Unrestricted uses in four samples. The arsenic concentration above the SCOs ranged from 14 to 21 mg/Kg which were above the Unrestricted use SCO of 13 mg/Kg and the Residential and Restricted Residential use SCO of 16 mg/Kg. HDR | HydroQual recommends a management plan be implemented to mitigate the impact of arsenic at the site.
