The Genzale Plating site is an electroplating facility, which occupies a 24,000-square-foot area in Franklin Square, Nassau County, New York. Land use in the area is predominantly residential, with a wetlands area located approximately 3 miles southeast of the site. The site overlies a Class II aquifer, which is tapped by three water supply wells within 1.5 miles of the site. Testing of the wastewater samples from the pits indicated heavy metal concentrations in excess of State discharge standards. The primary contaminants of concern affecting the soil and ground water are VOCs including PCE and TCE; other organics including PAHs; and metals including arsenic, chromium, and lead. The selected interim remedial action for this site includes treating soil using in-situ vacuum extraction and vapor phase carbon adsorption to control emissions followed by excavating 1,600 cubic yards of the treated soil and 480 cubic yards of topsoil and material from the leaching pits.
