A draft work plan being reviewed by the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (NYSDEC) to investigate the 1640 Flatbush Avenue site (“site”) located at 1640 Flatbush Avenue, Brooklyn, NY. Please click here for additional details and a site location map.

Draft Investigation Work Plan

The draft investigation work plan, called a “Remedial Investigation Work Plan,” was submitted to NYSDEC under New York’s Brownfield Cleanup Program (BCP). The investigation will be performed by 1640 Flatbush Owner LLC (“applicant(s)”) with oversight by NYSDEC and the New York State Department of Health (NYSDOH). The proposed plan is available for review at the Community Board 14 District Office.

Highlights of the Proposed Site Investigation

The investigation will define the nature and extent of contamination in soil, soil vapor and groundwater on the site. The investigation will also determine if contamination is entering the site from upgradient sources, and/or leaving the site and potentially impacting off-site receptors.

Next Steps

NYSDEC will consider public comments, revise the plan as necessary, and approve the work plan. NYSDOH must concur with the plan. The approved work plan will be made available to the public (see “Where to Find Information” below). After the work plan is approved, the activities detailed in the work plan will be implemented.
