Petroleum and related products have been refined, stored, and shipped in huge quantities for over one hundred years. For much of that time regulations were either lax or non-existent, and spills and leaks were common. It is only during the last 20 years that we have begun to address the large backlog of petroleum contaminated sites. In New York State we have a well-developed Spill Response Program maintained by the NYSDEC. The DEC also provides technical guidance concerning remediation of petroleum spill sites, including excavation of contaminated soils.
