EPA Superfund Program: PENINSULA BOULEVARD GROUNDWATER PLUME, HEWLETT, NY

Superfund Site Profile

The Peninsula Boulevard Groundwater Plume site is a tetrachloroethylene (PCE or perc) groundwater plume in Hewlett, New York. Its source is unknown. The groundwater flows toward the northwest, in the direction of the Long Island American Water Plant 5 Well Field, a source of drinking water. Since April 1991, the Plant 5 well water has been treated by a packed tower aeration system, also known as an air stripper. Remedial design for the site’s groundwater treatment system is underway. EPA is also assessing the site’s source areas.
