Document Description
The school project will replace Hammel Street Elementary School and acquire additional parcels for the proposed East Los Angeles High School #2. The Removal Action Workplan (RAW) includes the excavation and disposal of contaminated soil containing metals (lead and arsenic) from the site to allow unrestricted use of the site for the new school construction. The soil removal is estimated to be 2,626 cubic yards of soil (2,347 cubic yards from 4240 Hammel Street, 234 cubic yards from 4153 East Cesar Chavez Avenue and 45 cubic yards from the planters at Hammel Street Elementary school). Based on soil profiling, soil will be disposed as non-hazardous waste, California Regulated Hazardous Waste, and RCRA Hazardous Waste.

Reasons for Exemption
This project is a small removal action costing approximately $594,000. The RAW includes Excavation Plan, Engineering Evaluation/Cost Analysis, Health and Safety Plan, Quality Assurance Project Plan, Transportation Plan, and Air Monitoring and Dust Control Program. The project will not have a significant effect on the environment because of the relatively short project duration, and the controlled manner in which contaminated soil will be excavated and loaded onto trucks and taken off-site for disposal. The proposed East Los Angeles High School #2 site is not on the Hazardous Waste and Substances Sites List or in a sensitive cultural or biological resource area.
