State wants contaminated soil excavated

PENN YAN—The Department of Environmental Conservation is proposing excavation of contaminated soil from the Camille Properties/former Penn Yan Marine Manufacturing site near the Keuka Outlet, and disposing it offsite.
The DEC will also hold a public meeting, Tuesday, March 9, to hear comments on its plan. The meeting will be held at 6 p.m., at the Yates County Office Building Auditorium, 417 Liberty St., Penn Yan. Copies of the DEC’s remediation plan are available for viewing at the Yates County Planner’s Office and the Penn Yan Public Library.
Written comments on the proposed remediation will be accepted until March 29. Comments should be sent to Kelly Cloyd, NYSDEC Region 8, 6274 East Avon-Lima Road, Avon, NY 14414, or kccloyd@gw.dec.state.ny.us.
The plan the DEC is proposing would cost $445,550. The plan includes excavating 9,200 tons of contaminated soil. After excavation, the DEC will monitor the site and restrict land and groundwater use at the site.
According to the DEC, when the site housed Penn Yan Marine Manufacturing Corp., poor materials handling resulted in the disposal of solvents used. The materials included acetone, trichloroethene, and trichloroethane. Solvents and petroleum were found in the groundwater and soils.
The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency removed and disposed by drums of chemical waste in 2003 and 2004 that were left at the site.
