Document Description
The project is a workplan to remove piles of cantaminated soils which were imported to the site by a prior tenant of the property. The contaminants in the soil contain approximately 39 ppm soluble lead, above the Soluble Threshold Level Concentration (STLC) of 5 ppm in Title 22, Section 66261.44, California Code of Regulations. The total lead concentrations (220 ppm total lead) are below the Total Threshold Level Concentration (TTLC) standard of 1000 ppm. Trace total hydrocarbons levels may also be present in the soil but these are well below the hazardous waste thresholds. The soil is hazardous in California but is not hazardous waste under federal standards. The objective of the workplan is to remove the soil piles in order to limit potential worker exposure and avoid potential contaminant migration to nearby Islais Creek and San Francisco Bay until a final remedy for the site is developed to address cleanup of any other contamination from past operations on the property.
