Crown Heights

VCP brownfield "vapor intrusion" VOCs

Site Description[1]
Records show this site operated as a gas station from 1951-1978. This site was vacant from approximately 1980 to 1996 when Pep Boys entered the VCP program. In October 1998, the Volunteer transferred title and control of the Site as well as the VCA to Autozone, Inc. Currently, this site is an AutoZone retail auto-parts store consisting of a single story building and a parking lot (1798 Atlantic Avenue). Surrounding properties include residential dwellings and commercial buildings. The Boys and Girls High School is located across Atlantic Avenue at 1700 Fulton Street, Brooklyn NY. The source of contamination was the gasoline UST's formerly located in the northeast corner of the property. Since 1996, Preliminary Site Investigation, Remedial Investigation and Remedial Action have been conducted. See spill #9605043

Site Environmental Assessment
The site has been remediated through the 1997 removal of underground gasoline and fuel oil storage tanks, hydraulic reservoirs, and contaminated soils. Treatment of residual contamination in soils and groundwater was accomplished through the use of Vacuum Enhanced Recovery (VER) and Oxygen Releasing Compound (ORC). A limited amount of gasoline contaminated soil in the northeast corner of the site was not removed to avoid undermining the sidewalk. Groundwater in the northeast corner exceeds standards for BTEX (benzene, tolulene, ethylbenzene, xylenes), but is anticipated to naturally attenuate and meet standards over time. A deed restriction will be filed, limiting site use to commercial or industrial, and prohibiting groundwater use without treatment.

Site Health Assessment
NYSDOH has insufficient information to evaluate the potential for human exposures.
