Draft Investigation Work Plan
The draft investigation work plan, called a “Remedial Investigation Work Plan,” was submitted to
NYSDEC under New York’s Brownfield Cleanup Program. The investigation will be performed by
Philips Electronics North America Corporation ("applicant") with oversight by NYSDEC and the
New York State Department of Health (NYSDOH).
How to Comment
NYSDEC is accepting written comments about the draft investigation work plan for 30 days, from
May 20, 2014 through June 19, 2014. The proposed plan is available for review at the location(s)
identified below under "Where to Find Information." Please submit comments to the NYSDEC
project manager listed under Project Related Questions in the "Whom to Contact" area below.
Highlights of the Proposed Site Investigation
The investigation will define the nature and extent of contamination in soil, surface water,
groundwater and any other parts of the environment that may be affected.
The proposed Remedial Investigation includes the collection of soil, soil vapor, and groundwater
samples to define the nature and extent of contamination. Based on results of the sampling, soil
vapor intrusion evaluations may be completed in on- and off-site buildings as necessary.
NYSDEC will consider public comments, revise the plan as necessary, and approve the work plan.
NYSDOH must concur with the plan. The approved work plan will be made available to the public
(see “Where to Find Information” below). After the work plan is approved, the activities detailed in
the work plan will be implemented.
