The approximately 0.5-acre Pasley Solvents and Chemical site is a former oil, solvent, and chemical storage tank farm located in the Town of Hempstead, Nassau County, New York. The only drinking water source in the area consists of aquifers; four public water supply wellfields are located within 2 miles of the site. In 1980, after Pasley requested a chemical storage and removal permit, a state inspection revealed soil contamination with VOCs beneath the above-ground storage tanks and recommended a remedial investigation and clean-up plan. The ROD addresses the contaminated surface soil and ground water as a final remedy. The primary contaminants of concern affecting the soil and ground water are VOCs, including benzene, PCE, TCE, toluene, and xylenes; and other organics, including PAHs and naphthalene. The selected remedial action at the site are included.
