Redevelopment at the Site

 

The Carroll & Dubies Sewage Disposal Superfund site is located in the Town of Deerpark, New York. The 3-acre site includes parcels of land owned by the cities of Port Jervis, Carroll and Dubies. Site operators disposed of septic and industrial wastes in lagoons on the site until 1989. Site investigations in the early 1990s found that disposal activities had contaminated the lagoons, the surrounding soil and site groundwater. In response, EPA placed the site on the National Priorities List (NPL) in 1990. Cleanup activities included removal, treatment and disposal of lagoon sludge and soil, natural attenuation of contaminants in the groundwater, institutional controls to restrict the use and installation of groundwater wells, groundwater monitoring, and surface water sampling. The potentially responsible parties completed the cleanup in 2000. The successful cleanup of the site enabled its beneficial reuse. In 2004, the City of Port Jervis began operating a small sand and gravel operation and Orange County owns a solid waste transfer station on a portion of the site. The Port Jervis Police Department also owns and operates a firing range on part of the site. Activities at the range do not conflict with the land use controls in place on the site.
