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).
How to Comment
NYSDEC is accepting written comments about the draft investigation work plan for 30 days, from October 28, 2016 through November 27, 2016. The proposed plan is available for review at the Community Board 14 District Office. Please submit comments to the NYSDEC project manager listed under Project-Related Questions.
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.
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.
