Brownfield Remedial Action Work Plan & Implementation
The Atlas Parcel C site is in a warehouse/commercial area located at 82-00
Cooper Avenue, Glendale, New York. In October of 2014, the ownership
of the property changed and the Brownfield Cleanup Agreement (BCA)
was amended to include Cooper 8200 Realty, LLC. as the Volunteer.
Cooper 8200 Realty LLC retained CORE to revise the Remedial Action
Work Plan (RAWP) submitted by the previous owner. The previous
RAWP evaluated a $20 million Track 1 Unrestricted Use Cleanup for the
site, including building demolition and excavation of over 66,000 cubic
yards of soil.
Based on provisions in the Decision Document (DD) issued for the
site and current and planned future use as a commercial and industrial
property, CORE reevaluated the cleanup goals. CORE suggested
a Track 4 Commercial Use cleanup with evaluation of soil vapor
intrusion potential in on-site buildings. The Track 4 cleanup goals
prevent unnecessary demolition of on-Site buildings and is more cost-
effective than achieving Track 1 cleanup goals. Upon approval of the
revised RAWP by NYSDEC, CORE will complete soil vapor intrusion
evaluation via installation of sub-slab vapor points and collection of sub-
slab vapor and indoor air quality (IAQ) samples.
If soil vapor intrusion mitigation is required, CORE will design and
install sub-slab depressurization systems (SSDS) in the affected buildings.
Under the BCA, CORE will also be required to complete a Final
Engineer Report (FER) and Site Management Plan (SMP) to deal with
impacted soils during potential future excavations.
