The purpose of the Phase II ESA was to further investigate recognized environmental conditions RECs at the site as documented in the Phase I ESA report. Specifically, the following REC was identified at the site: � Historical records indicate that Double A Cleaners operated on Parcel No. 118-25-1420 during the 1950s. Drycleaners are a known source of perchloroethylene PCE contamination to soil and/or groundwater. PCE may have impacted this parcel and/or the two adjoining parcels as a result of improper disposal of PCE to the subject site. Therefore, it was recommended that soil samples be collected from the site and analyzed for PCE to identify potential impacts, if any, to soil and/or groundwater on the subject property. The Phase II field investigation was conducted on December 14, 2010 and 23 samples were collected from four locations. The samples were analyzed for VOCs using EPA Method 8260. VOCs were not present above the analytical laboratory method detection limits in samples collected from the borings. Based on the results of the Phase II ESA and the results and conclusions provided in the Phase I ESA, the site has been adequately characterized for the presence of VOCs and does not recommend that further assessment at this site should be performed.
Former Use: In 1958, the subject property was primarily occupied by a commercial structure with the exception of the northeast portion which was vacant. This structure, which contained the addresses 2201 and 2205 S. 4th Avenue, was constructed between 1944 and 1958. Various hair salons operated from the 2201 S. 4th Avenue portion of the facility until between 1993 and 1998. After the hair salon discontinued operations, the interior walls which divided the two addresses were removed and the 2205 S. 4th Avenue address was used for the entire structure. Double A Cleaners operated from the 2205 S. 4th Avenue portion of the facility until between 1954 and 1959. Between 1959 and 1969, Merritt�s Saw & Key operated from the facility. After Merritt�s Saw & Key discontinued operations, various restaurants operated from the facility until 2010.
