NYSDEC Brownfields Cleanup Program
3349 Webster Avenue, Bronx, NY
ZEB provided technical support and acted as a liaison between the NYSDEC, NYSDOH, and the developer. We participated in pre-application meetings with NYSDEC to introduce the project. In addition, we collaborated with the client and project team to develop the most effective strategy to streamline the project's representation with the State and project schedule under the Brownfield Cleanup program. ZEB provided invaluable guidance during the development of the scope of work and preparation of project documents, which included a Remedial Investigation Work Plan and Health and Safety Plan, Interim Remedial Measures Work Plan, a Remedial Investigation Report, an Interim Remedial Measures Construction Completion Report, and a Final Engineering Report. This project is completed and has obtained a Certificate of Completion from NYSDEC.
NYCOER E-Designation Project
395 Leonard Street, Brooklyn, NY
ZEB developed the scope of work for the environmental investigation, required to redevelop the "E" designated property. ZEB created Phase I and II work plans and reports, HASP and CHASP, which the NYCOER must approve prior to the start of the work. To assess the soil quality, ZEB coordinated and oversaw subsurface investigations performed at the site, including a geophysical survey and soil and groundwater sampling programs. Based on the findings, ZEB developed and implemented remedial strategies and prepared a Remedial Action Plan for NYCOER approval. After overseeing the excavation and remediation of site soils, ZEB prepared a Tank Closure Report and a Remedial Closure Report. Ultimately, NYCOER has issued a Notice of Satisfaction to the DOB.
Former Suffolk Metal Finishing Site
NYSDEC RCRA Program
627 Coates Avenue, Holbrook, NY
ZEB guided the project through the RCRA Closure Program. ZEB provided oversight of the remedial effort and collected endpoint samples to document the effectiveness of the remediation. Ultimately, ZEB prepared the RCRA Closure Report, Site Management Plan, Engineering Controls Work Plan, and Final Engineering Report. This project is nearing completion and will be obtaining a RCRA Closure from the NYSDEC.
East Houston Street
NYCDEP Redevelopment Program
331 East Houston Street, NY, NY
ZEB shepherded the project through the redevelopment program for NYCDEP. We were responsible for the development of a Remedial Action Plan and Construction Health and Safety Plan to address identified site impacts. In addition, ZEB provided oversight of the remedial effort and collected endpoint samples to document the effectiveness of the remediation. Ultimately, ZEB prepared the Remedial Action Plan, Construction Health and Safety Plan, and Remedial Closure Report.
Peter Cooper Village
NYCDEP Redevelopment Program
Peter Cooper Village, New York, NY
A ConEd operated Manufactured Gas Plant (MGP) has produced residual material through the operations process over time. The residual material, mostly consisting of coal tar, has been deposited in the soils of the surrounding areas, which are located in and around Peter Cooper Village and Stuyvesent Town Properties in Manhattan. It is assumed the residual material has migrated into the soil and potentially the groundwater. Langan Environmental performed invasive activities at the site to excavate and remove impacted soils.
ZEB Environmental Solutions, Inc. performed site remediation activities including air and dust monitoring for the excavated soil and work areas of the site, on behalf of Langdon Environmental.
Aircraft Finishing Site
Supplemental Groundwater Investigation
612 Rutgers Road, West Babylon, NY
ZEB Environmental Solutions, Inc. performed a Supplemental Groundwater Investigation to delineate the lateral and vertical extent of VOCs and metals in the groundwater adjacent to a prior testing location and to determine the groundwater quality beneath the site. Six vertical profile sampling temporary groundwater wells were installed. In addition, five permanent groundwater-monitoring wells were installed in order to determine groundwater quality and determine groundwater flow direction.
The purpose of this investigation was to determine groundwater quality downgradient of the secondary containment area and chemical storage area. In addition, the lateral and vertical extent of VOCs and metals in the groundwater, downgradient of the secondary containment area, spray paint area, and chemical storage area were defined. In order to determine the extent of groundwater impact, a total of six (6) vertical profile wells and five (5) permanent monitoring wells were installed.
Based on the results of the investigations performed at the site, it appears that the slightly elevated concentrations of VOCs and metals in the groundwater are limited to the area immediately downgradient of the secondary containment area. It is believed that these concentrations are the result of minor releases from the secondary containment area, as no source of contamination (impacted soils) was identified. Ultimately, the secondary containment area has been cleaned and properly sealed to prevent future releases.
ZEB Environmental Solutions is currently performing quarterly groundwater sampling of the monitoring wells in order to demonstrate that groundwater quality is improving as a result of the proper sealing of the secondary containment area. In addition, on-site storm drains have been remediated and signed off by the Suffolk County Department of Health Services.
NYC Housing Preservation and Development
2065 Walton Avenue, Bronx, NY
ZEB is in the process of providing technical support and acting as a liaison between the NYCDEP and the developer. A Remedial Action Plan (RAP) has been prepared detailing he best management practices to be employed during construction, based on the data set forth in the Phase I ESA and Subsurface Investigation Report, also prepared by ZEB.
Development plans consist of a 10-story residential building, with 92 units. Ninety-one (91) studios will be for persons earning less than 60% of area median income, including 58 homeless veterans. There is also a one-bedroom apartment for a live-in superintendent.
