The 2-acre Mattiace Petrochemical site is an inactive liquid storage and redistribution facility in Glen Cove, Nassau County, New York. The site overlies a system of three unconsolidated sedimentary aquifers, which may be affected by onsite contamination. From the mid-1960s to 1986, organic solvents were stored, blended, and repackaged onsite. Drums were reconditioned onsite, and resulting water/solvent mixtures were discharged to above-ground tanks or to an onsite leaching pond. A solvent water separator was used to collect overflow from the above-ground tanks for discharge to the leaching pond. There is evidence, however, that overflow from these tanks may have been discharged directly into the soil. The Record of Decision (ROD) addresses Operable Unit 2 (OU2) and includes removal of drummed sludges and highly contaminated soil. The primary contaminants of concern affecting the soil, sludge, and debris are VOCs including benzene, PCE, TCE, toluene, and xylenes; other organics including phenols; and metals including arsenic, chromium, and lead.
