The 0.5-acre Preferred Plating site is located in a light industrial area of Farmingdale, Suffolk County, New York. The site is bordered to the east and west by commercial and light industrial properties, to the north by a large wooded area, and to the south by a residential community and a U.S. Army facility. Between September 1951 and June 1976, Preferred Plating Corporation operated a metal treating facility that resulted in the generation, storage, and disposal of hazardous waste. Untreated waste water was discharged to four concrete leaching points directly behind the facility. Site investigations conducted by the Suffolk County Department of Health Services as early as 1953 revealed heavy metal contamination of ground water and cracked and leaking onsite leaching pits. Ground water is used for drinking water supplies by the entire population of both Nassau and Suffolk counties. The operable unit addresses the overall ground water contamination attributable to the site; a second operable unit will be undertaken to more fully characterize and identify any contaminated soil and to investigate potential upgradient sources of contamination.
