NEW YORK — The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has proposed to delete the Pasley Solvents and Chemicals site in Hempstead, N.Y., from the Superfund National Priorities List because the site no longer poses a threat to public health or the environment after a successful cleanup of contaminated groundwater and soil at the site, according to a press release.

The site, which was placed on the Superfund list in June 1986, is a former tank farm that was used for the storage of oils, solvents and chemicals.

Activities at the site included delivery and storage of chemicals in tanks, and the transfer of the chemicals to large drums.

EPA oversaw the cleanup of the site, which began in 1997 and comprised removing some 14,000 pounds of volatile organic compounds (VOCs) from groundwater and soil through on-site treatment, and monitoring air and groundwater to ensure the cleanup was effective.
