Below is a summary of activities during the last month related to the former Texaco Beacon Research Facility.
A draft Feasibility Study (FS) was submitted to the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation for review and comment. The first FS covers remedial alternatives for the portions of the site that are south of the railroad. NYSDEC has assigned a new case manager to the project. Chevron has offered to familiarize the new case manager with the site, which should help facilitate the review of environmental documentation.
Real Estate Update
Chevron and Dutchess County have finalized the sale of a small parcel of land to facilitate the bridge replacement project. We continue to market the site to local and regional developers. There is no additional update at this time.
CAP Meeting Update
Chevron continues to follow the regulatory process for this site and will plan to host the next CAP meeting as agency feedback is received and incorporated into the first FS, or as any other key milestones occur.
