The Jackson Steel manufacturing plant, located in the Village of Mineola, New York, has been officially downgraded from a Class 02 to a Class 04, meaning the vacant U.S. EPA Superfund site is no longer a significant threat to the public's health or the environment. Manufacturing of roll-form metal shapes was conducted at the facility 1970-1991, where spills of degreasers, including PCE, TCE, and 1,1,1-TCA, at the waste storage area contributed to contamination of the soil and groundwater. The site-wide remedy implemented at Jackson Steel included excavation of contaminated soil, installation, and operation of a soil vapor extraction system and groundwater treatment via in situ chemical oxidation. Any remaining contamination will be addressed under the site management plan, which consists of a vapor intrusion management plan and institutional control implementation and assurance plan. http://www.dec.ny.gov/data/der/factsheet/130095reclass.pdf See additional details in the EPA site closeout report at https://semspub.epa.gov/work/02/436119.pdf.
