The 3.2-acre Applied Environmental Services site is a former petroleum, gasoline, and solvent chemical facility in Glenwood Landing, Nassau County, New York. The site is surrounded by industrial, commercial, and residential properties. A tidal wetlands area of Hempstead Harbor is located to the west of the site. EPA and State investigations in 1984 identified VOCs, metals, and organics in soil, sediment, ground water, surface water, and air. Consequently, in 1984, the current site owner, Shore Realty, was required to remove 255 of the 410 drums containing hazardous waste that were stored on the property. In 1986 due to the imminent danger posed by the site, the State removed approximately 700,000 gallons of hazardous waste including PCBs from the facility. The Record of Decision (ROD) addresses contamination of soil, ground water, sediment, surface water, and air as a final remedy. The primary contaminants of concern affecting the soil, sediment, ground water, surface water, and air are VOCs including TCE, toluene, and xylenes; other organics including PCBs and PAHs; metals including arsenic, chromium, and lead; and oils. The selected remedial action for the site is included.
