DEC to Take Inwood Property off Hazard List

Department is accepting comment up until Nov. 2.

DEC to Take Inwood Property off Hazard List

New York’s Department of Environmental Conservation will consider taking a Burnside Avenue property in Inwood off its registry of “Inactive Hazardous Waste Disposal Sites” because it is no longer a threat to public health or the environment.

According to the DEC, recent groundwater sampling at 525-535 Burnside Ave. found trichloroethene and cis-1,2- dichloroethene “slightly exceeding Class GA Ambient groundwater standards.” However, the area of the contamination is localized and the source of it has not been identified, so there’s no threat to the public, a public notice said.

Businesses on this stretch of road include 5 Town Tire and Island Signs.

The public can have a say on the department’s move until Nov. 2. If it does not receive comment by then, the site will be delisted on or after Nov. 24.

Comments can be sent to Project Manager John Sheehan of NYS Department of Environmental Conservation, Division of Environmental Remediation, at SUNY @ Stony Brook, 50 Circle Road, Stony Brook, NY 11790, jcsheehan@gw.dec.state.ny.us or by phone at (631) 444-0240.
