Notification of the filing was sent to Mayor Miriam Levitt-Flisser.

Flisser said petroleum products penetrated the ground down to the bedrock in the southern and central parts of the property, and that the groundwater had been affected. Flisser said Tuesday the property had housed auto service and fueling businesses from 1932 to January 2011 and, prior to that, had been used for petroleum storage. She said the cleanup is expected to take four to seven months once approval of the plans is granted.
