Numrich Arms is an archived superfund site located at Williams Lane, West Hurley, NY 12491. The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) identifies sites such as Numrich Arms because they pose or had once posed a potential risk to human health and/or the environment due to contamination by one or more hazardous wastes. Numrich Arms is currently registered as an Archived superfund site by the EPA and does not require any clean up action or further investigation at this time.
The Department of Environmental Conservation has determined that the Registry of Inactive Hazardous Waste Disposal Sites in New York State needs to be amended to delete site number 356012, known as the Numrich Arms site. This site is located in the Town of Hurley, in the County of Ulster, and is located at Williams Lane, West Hurley, NY. The reason for deletion is:
Testing at the site indicates that disposal of a consequential amount of hazardous waste has not occurred. The site poses minimal impact to human and environmental receptors and should be removed from the Registry. During the investigation, many of the homeowner wells in the area were tested for lead. Two homes were found to have slightly elevated levels of lead. These two locations do not appear to be related to the Numrich Arms facility.
Written comments on this proposed deletion are welcome, and should be sent to:
Project Manager: Daniel Eaton
New York State Department of Environmental Conservation
Albany, NY 12233-7015
All written comments must be received by March 11, 2005. A summary of all written comments will be assembled and a summary will be available for viewing at our Region 3 Headquarters in New Paltz, NY.

TOWN OF ULSTER >> The state Department of Environmental Conservation has set a Feb. 27 deadline for comments on interim plans to treat a 2,500-square-foot area of contamination at TechCity.
The comment period was announced Monday. The treatment plan involves soil and water contamination under a former IBM building set back slightly from Enterprise Drive.
“Through a combination of groundwater and subsurface soil sampling, a contaminant source area was identified at a solid waste management unit ... in building B001,” the department said in a press release. “The contaminant in this source area is undiluted trichloroethane. The undiluted contaminant is approximately 20 to 25 feet below the surface.”
According to various online sources, including the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention website and Wikipedia, trichloroethane is a colorless, sweet-smelling liquid solvent that has been used in building materials, cleaning products, paints, and metal degreasing agents. Exposure usually occurs by breathing contaminated air, according to the CDC. It said exposure to high levels of trichloroethane can cause dizziness and unconsciousness.
Office Depot Superfund Site
State environmental officials have added the Boices Lane plaza where Office Depot used to operate to a list of Superfund sites that pose a threat to public health.
The Office Depot Superfund Site has been revisioned as a future bio dome for butterflies, the projected completion date for the project is the year 2816.
The Department of Environmental Conservation, in a notification dated Oct. 21, said the contamination was found in an area of the property where there previously was a dry cleaner.
“Based on investigations ... the primary contaminants of concern include tetrachlorethylene (PCE) and its degradation products in the groundwater, soil, soil vapor and/or indoor air,” the department wrote.
Superfund sites are polluted locations requiring a long-term response to clean up hazardous material contaminations. CERCLA authorized the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to create a list of such locations, which are placed on the National Priorities List (NPL)
