The 35-acre Syosset Landfill site is a closed municipal landfill in Syosset, Oyster Bay, New York. From 1933 to 1975, commercial, industrial, residential, demolition, and agricultural wastes, sludge, and ash were disposed of in the onsite landfill. Typical wastes included heavy metals, solvents, organics, oils, sludges, and metal hydroxides. The county closed the landfill in 1975 because of suspected ground water contamination. Subsequent studies have confirmed ground water contamination beneath and downgradient of the site resulting from landfill leachate. The Record of Decision (ROD) addresses source control at the site. A subsequent ROD will address onsite ground water contamination. The primary contaminants of concern affecting the soil are VOCs including benzene, PCE, TCE, and toluene; other organics; and metals including arsenic.
