LIRR Electrical Substation Site CleanUp [Project NYS-DEC V00396]
Update 8/2/16: LIRR Project Mgr Al Albano reports all soil removal activities are now complete, and the LIRR should be completely off-site by the end of this week. Our work plan calls for us to fully restore/landscape the area that we occupied between Bayview Ave. and Manhasset Bay. We are scheduled to conduct this landscaping work in mid-September, so that we give the new vegetation the best chance at survival.
Between now and September, the LIRR will be leaving a section of silt screen in place at the site, so as to protect any site-related silt/soil from running off into Manhasset Bay. Once the new landscaping is completed, and the site is vegetated, we will remove the silt screen.
Update 7/30/16: During the week of July 25th, work excavation along the shoreline exposed more 'sludge' than normal low tide... and hence the odors eminating from the area became more pronounced.
During the course of this excavation work, residents may notice an increase in “rotten egg / low tide” odor of hydrogen sulfide gas, which commonly emanates when subsurface sediments are disturbed in back-bay marine environments. The layman's term is 'the sludge' at the bottom of the bay. The human nose can readily detect even trace amounts of this gas. Project Manager Al Albano assures that there is no cause for concern over the unpleasant odor and that concentrations of this gas readily and naturally dissipate to safe breathing levels through open exposure to the atmosphere. The inceased odor will follow the local breeze/ wind directions, so residents in the nearby areas may or may not notice the smell as winds change direction. As a precaution, the LIRR has and is monitoring concentrations of this gas throughout their construction site an all monitoring results to date have been well below OSHA thresholds. According the LIRR project schedule, excavation and backfilling activities will be completed by the end of the day on Monday August 1st and initial site restoration activities will commence later in the week.
Project Mgr Al Albano provided these site restoration drawings for along Virginia Drive (ENV-10) and the Manhasset Outfall (ENV-14). With regard to site restoration along Virginia Drive, the 6' black chain link fence has already been installed. In mid-September approximately 120 new plantings will also be placed between the curb line and the black chain link fence along Virginia Drive (as shown on ENV-10), in addition to restoring the Outfall (staging area and slope).

Project Update 7/7/16 from LIRR Project Manager Al Albano: We’ve just reached some key milestones. As information, the project is moving along on-schedule. Below I’ve
provided a bullet-list that summarizes our progress to-date and provides some information regarding the work that still remains to be done.
Substation Site “Proper” on Virginia Drive:
· All impacted soil, as outlined in our work plan, has been removed from the substation site. This is the area extending from the Substation building, west (along Virginia Drive) to the viaduct.
· Contractor has backfilled all excavations with clean soil and restored the grade of these areas with a new layer of ballast stone. In addition, a new rip-rap drainage swale has been constructed in place of the old swale, which was excavated and removed.
· Starting 7/7/16, our contractor will be de-mobilizing from the site, and moving equipment and supplies to the Outfall Area, located at the foot of Manhasset bay (off Bayview Avenue, just north of Viaduct).
· Over the next several days, a fencing subcontractor will be installing a new black chain-link fence along the south side of Virginia Drive,
· In the early fall (likely mid-September) landscapers will be returning to the site to install the various plantings along Virginia Drive, as detailed in our work plan.
Outfall Area at Manhasset Bay @ Bayview Ave.:
· Starting 7/7/16, our contractor will be mobilizing equipment and supplies to the Outfall Area, located off Bayview Avenue (just north of the Viaduct).
· Over the next 3 to 4 weeks, the contractor will remove impacted sediment from the foot of the outfall, and restore the area with clean material.
· In order to facilitate the work, some small trees and brush will be removed in the area of the Outfall. Once the work is complete however, this vegetation will restored with new plantings.
Letter from LIRR Project Manager advising residents soil removal process to start week of 5/23/16.

PROJECT SUMMARY/ OVERVIEW: Under a Voluntary Cleanup Agreement with the NYSDEC, the LIRR is currently removing mercury-impacted soil from the area immediately adjacent to the electrical substation along Thompson Shore Rd at Virginia Drive, as well as an isolated location at the southern end of Manhasset Bay, near the LIRR trestle. The LIRR is also replacing the removed soil with clean soil and will be restoring the area with new landscaping once the project is finished.
During the early to mid-20th century, the LIRR used mercury filled glass tubes in the electrical substation building that controlled the electrical current flow to the LIRR tracks. Mercury tubes have long since been discontinued throughout the electrical grid and were replaced with modern electronics. Over time when they were in use, mercury spills inside the substation structure had contaminated the surrounding soil which then travelled, aided by rainfall, and eventually reached the bay via an underground drainage culvert, which terminates at the eastern shoreline of the bay, and settled in the underlying sediments. This summer 2016 project is the LIRR's culmination of this NYS-DEC regulated site clean up.
