FMC Corporation Central Plant Area, Proposed Remedy Selection for Soil, Soil Gas, and Groundwater
Document Type
NEG - Negative Declaration
Present Land Use
Document Description
The proposed project for this initial Study and Negative Declaration consists of the following specific future action: - Continued extraction of groundwater from nine existing extraction wells located on the northern property boundary along Coleman Avenue and the transmission of that impacted groundwater to an activated carbon treatment system; - Continued operation and maintenance of the groundwater treatment system and discharge of the treated groundwater to the City of San Jose's storm drain system in compliance with the existing National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) permit; - Continued groundwater monitoring to demonstrate the effectiveness of the extraction well in containing the impacted groundwater; and - Development of deed restrictions for the Central Plant Area implemented through land use covenant regulations with the DTSC. The deed restriction will restrict the property to indrustrial/ commercial use only, prohibit the use of the property for agricultural purposes, prohibit use of groundwater for drinking and irrigation, and prohibit the use of the property for schools, hospitals, and day care centers. Buildings constructed over selected areas of the site will be required covenant will require a Soil Management Plant which will ensure the proper management of soils excavated at the site to protect human health and the environment.
