Superfund Site: MATTIACE PETROCHEMICAL CO., INC.
GLEN COVE, NY
Superfund Site Profile
The Mattiace Petrochemical Co., Inc. site is located in Glen Cove, New York. The 2.5-acre area is an inactive chemical distribution facility. From the mid-1960s until 1987, Mattiace received chemicals by tank truck and redistributed them to its customers. The company also operated the M&M Drum Cleaning Company on site until 1982. During this time, a Quonset hut, shed, concrete loading dock and about 56 storage tanks were located on site. In 1988, EPA undertook an emergency action to secure the site and remove more than 100,000 gallons of hazardous liquids. Construction of the site’s long-term soil and groundwater remedy as described in the 1991 Record of Decision (ROD) finished in 1998. The treatment system operated for approximately 16 years before a ROD Amendment was signed in September 2014 changing the remedy. The amended remedy is currently in the design phase with remedial action implementation anticipated to begin in summer 2016.
