Site Summary:
Federal Register Notice:  June 10, 1986

Conditions at proposal (October 15, 1984): Goldisc Recordings, Inc. (formerly Sonic Recording Products) in Holbrook, Town of Islip, Suffolk County, New York, produced phonographic records from January 1968 to June 1983. The facility occupies approximately 150,000 square feet on 7 acres of commercially zoned property. Wastes generated at the site include large quantities of nickel plating wastes and hydraulic oil, and lesser quantities of solvents. On several occasions, the Suffolk County Department of Health discovered chemical wastes in storm drains, holding ponds, and an on-site dump located in the recharge basin of an aquifer. In 1981, the county detected excessive levels of solvents, nickel, and oil in sanitary and storm drains. An area between the two buildings on the site is paved, and there is a large paved area on the southern portion of the site. Sanitary and storm drains, two above-ground tanks, and some 55-gallon drums are located between the two buildings. A large holding pond is located on the north side of the site.

A grassy wooded area surrounds the property. The site is relatively flat to the south and west, with variable topography to the north and east. Residential and commercial areas are largely to the west and south, and relatively undeveloped land lies adjacent to the site to the north and east. Many surface water bodies, including lakes and basins that recharge ground water, are downgradient.

An estimated 130 wells within 3 miles of the site serve a minimum population of 71,000. A public supply well is 1,000 feet downgradient (south) of the site. Other public and private supply wells are also downgradient. Ground water is the only source of water supply in the area.

The State issued a number of Consent Orders to Goldisc between 1979 and 1981 for numerous violations of Article 12 of the Suffolk County Sanitary Code and the State's Environmental Conservation Law.

Status (June 10, 1986): The present owner, First Holbrook Co., has cleaned the leaching pools and installed monitoring wells. On December 20, 1985, the Electrosand Group, Inc. (present occupants of the site) and the present owner entered into a Consent Order with the State to undertake a remedial investigation/feasibility study to determine the type and extent of contamination at the site and identify alternatives for remedial action.

Institutional Controls:
Media Where IC Applies
(Multiple entries where more than one pathway is impacted)
Restriction Type Instrument
expand Ground Water
Prohibit Ground Water Well Installation/Construction
At the time of the Record of Decision (ROD) there existed Suffolk County Department of Health Services (SCDHS) regulations which addressed the period of restoration of the groundwater to drinking water standards. SCDHS regulations require new residences and businesses to connect to public water supplies whenever public water mains are reasonably available. Where such mains are not available, the SCDHS regulations require proposed wells for new residences and businesses be tested for water quality prior to use and provide treatment, if necessary. Suffolk County is expected to adequately enforce its regulations for at least as long as the groundwater was impacted by site-related contamination.

In September 1996, EPA entered into a consent decree (CD) with the PRPs. The CD required a PRP to implement the remedial action selected in the 1995 ROD. Under the CD, a PRP was required to provide EPA with access to the Site, ensure that the Site would not be used for residential purposes and not permit the installation or use of any groundwater wells at the site.
