Superfund Site Profile


SITE BACKGROUND

The Bioclinical Laboratories, Inc. (BCL) site is located in Bohemia, New York. The site is a rental property within a 10-unit, single-story building on a 2.6-acre paved lot. BCL formulated, mixed, repackaged and distributed chemicals there from 1978 to 1981. Sampling found a range of organic contaminants, including solvents, in the facility’s sanitary systems. In July 1981, a fire destroyed much of BCL's inventory. Following removal of fire-damaged containers and industrial wastes from the facility’s sanitary systems, EPA determined that no further cleanup was required. EPA took the site off the Superfund program’s National Priorities List in September 1994.
