We make every effort to ensure the data presented here is accurate based on the best available information currently on file with DEC. It is therefore subject to change as new information becomes available. We recommend contacting the assigned project staff prior to making decisions based on this information.
Crude oil was observed in shot rock and water (meltwater) exposed at a reported depth of approximately 12 feet below ground surface in the excavation dug to enable the reinsulation of the pipeline deadleg at PS-4. According to Alyeska, the suspected source of contamination was a May 5, 1984 spill of 210 gallons of crude oil due to the failure of a seal on the pig launcher in the manifold building.

|12/27/1993||Report or Workplan Review - Other||Date on document received January 5,1994 entitled Results of Water Sample Analysis, PS-4 Deadleg Excavation (1984 Spill Referenced in Alyeska Notification Letter No. 84-3669-C). A sample and duplicate was collected from the oily water directly from the meltwater surface. Results were 119 and 271 mg/L total recoverable petroleum hydrocarbon, 0.0033 and 0.0030 benzene, 0.0011 and 0.0010 mg/L toluene, 0.0024 and 0.0020 mg/L ethylbenzene, 0.0079 and 0.0062 mg/L p/m xylenes, and 0.0016 and 0.0014 mg/L o xylene. Soil samples were not collected for confirmation as the matix was described as too large to fit in standard sample containers (coarse gravel to cobble-sized clasts) at the base of the hole.||Keather McLoone|

|11/1/2011||Update or Other Action||File review to determine if this site can be considered a languishing site. Email on this date sent to Alyeska asking if the additional work recommended in the December 27, 1993 Emcon report was conducted.||Keather McLoone|
|11/2/2011||Exposure Tracking Model Ranking||A new updated ranking with ETM has been completed for source area 71147 manifold building piping AND update to workload prioritization to indicate this site appears to be "stalled" or "languishing".||Keather McLoone|
|11/13/2012||Meeting or Teleconference Held||Met with Alyeska (Jan Shifflett) and SLR International (Scott Rose) about conducting additional characterization in 2013. Given the age of the release event (almost 30 years ago) and small estimated volume of crude involved (~210 gallons), it is likely that most of the contaminant has undergone bioremediation.||Richard Bernhardt|
