Port Authority of New York and New Jersey, Proctor and Gamble
Site Description[1][2][3]  
The Port Authority of New York and New Jersey is the current owner of the Howland Hook Marine Terminal - Port Ivory Facility located at 40 Western Avenue, in northwestern Staten Island, Richmond County, NY. This 124-acre property is a former manufacturing facility for Proctor and Gamble (P&G) who operated from the early 1900's until 1991. The site contained numerous buildings used for the manufacture of consumer products including soap, detergent and foods. The Port Authority purchased the site from P&G in 2000. The Port Authority's planned use for this site includes an intermodal facility and container terminal for loading and unloading shipping cargo. The Port Authority entered the voluntary cleanup program for three areas within the Port Ivory facility, designated as sites V00615, V00674 and V00675 (refer to these site numbers for specific information on these sites).

Site Environmental Assessment
Port Ivory Site 1 consists largely of historic fill, and is consistent with the urbanized and industrial nature of the former Proctor & Gamble Site, consisting of production by-products (calcium carbonate, spent diatomaceous filter earth, and spent carbonaceous filter material); and contamination of both soil and groundwater, in varying degrees throughout the Site, with volatile organic compounds (VOCs), several semi-volatile organic compounds (SVOCs), metals, petroleum and non-petroleum oils.

Port Ivory Site 2 contamination is present in on-site soils, which consist largely of historic fill. Fill material is consistent with the urbanized and industrial nature of Site, containing primarily vegetative debris and cinders, but includs production by-products (calcium carbonate, spent diatomaceous filter earth, and spent carbonaceous filter material). Contaminants present in soil include the volatile organic compound (VOC) xylene, several semi-volatile organic compounds (SVOCs), predominantly PAH compounds, metals, petroleum and non-petroleum oils. Minor levels of contaminants in the groundwater include vinyl chloride, bis(2-ethylhexyl)phthalate and metals.

Port Ivory Site 3 contamination in soils, consisting largely of historic fill, is consistent with the urbanized and industrial nature of Site, consisting of primarily vegetative debris and cinders, but including production by-products (calcium carbonate, spent diatomaceous filter earth, and spent carbonaceous filter material), several semi-volatile organic compounds (SVOCs), predominantly PAH compounds, metals, petroleum and non-petroleum oils and contamination of groundwater with bis(2-ethylhexyl)phthalate and metals.

Site Health Assessment
On-site soils are contaminated with volatile organics, inorganics, petroleum products, and polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons. The proposed remedy includes a soil cap, that will minimize direct contact to contaminated soils. The intended future use of the site is an intermodal storage facility. While most of the buildings on-site will be demolished, a few buildings will be left for future occupancy. The levels found in sub-slab soil vapor and indoor/outdoor air samples do not represent a health concern for the intended use of the site.
