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.
The site is the location of a former Nike Missile Site that hosted more than 70 Cajun Missile launches. An initial EPA START sampling episode was conducted in July 1999 that identified TPH contamination and three transformers at the site. Three transformers were subsequently removed in 2002 by the USACOE and testing indicated petroleum hydrocarbons were present, but at concentrations below Arctic Zone cleanup levels. Since the initial EPA START testing identified only petroleum as a chemical of concern, the site was referred to the State DEC for further oversight and the site was entered into the CS database. The follow-up 2002 testing identified DRO only at concentrations below cleanup levels. The site was eligible for FUDs money, but a report in 2005 stated that there were no FUDs issues or concerns. In 2005 the site was determined FUDs eligible, but there were no current FUDs eligible hazards at the site. EPA ID # AKSFN1002131.
