Site Report: Barwell Island Base End Station
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.
Approximately 20 deteriorated lead-acid batteries are located within a concrete searchlight bunker at the site. Several batteries are cracked or leaking and have the potential to realease hazardous substances including lead. A partially exposed undergroung storage tank with a large hole in the side is also located at the site. The UST contents appear to be rainwater and vegetation. A communications line or cable, approximatley 500 feet long is also present that may be lead-sheathed. The US Fish and Wildlife service desires the batteries be removed. The island is rugged and access is primarily by helicopter due to the sensitive status of the habitat. Public access is possible via boat.
