The BEC Trucking site, also known as the Binghamton Equipment Company, is in the town of Vestal, Broome County, New York. The 3.5-acre site is an open lot which overlies a Class II aquifer. Land use neighboring the site is primarily commercial/industrial, but includes wetlands or marsh area to the west. The original owner, Haial Trucking, later to become BEC Trucking, filled some of the marshlands with various fill materials, including fly ash from a local power company. BEC Trucking, Haial Trucking's successor, operated a combination truck body fabrication and truck maintenance facility. Paint thinners and enamel reducers used during operations, and waste hydraulic oil and waste motor oil reportedly generated during operations were stored in a drum storage area. A 1982 State inspection identified approximately 50 drums, 20 of which contained waste engine or cutting oils, enamel reducers, paint thinners, and waste solvents. In 1988 extensive sampling of ground water, surface water, and soil revealed low-level contamination. The suspected source of onsite ground water and surface water contamination appears to be a leaking underground storage tank on a neighboring property. Remedial activities are currently being undertaken at the neighboring site to address any ground water or surface water contamination at the site resulting from the tank's leakage.
