Portola Yard Corrective Action Project
NEG - Negative Declaration
Present Land Use
Undeveloped land within the boundaries of the Union Pacific Railroad Yard. Zoned "Utilities" by City of Portola.
Union Pacific Railroad Company is proposing to undertake corrective action to address subsurface petroleum in soil and groundwater at the Portola Yard in Portola, California. Corrective action will be conducted north of the Portola Railroad Museum and south of the Middle Fork of the Feather River. The corrective action goal for groundwater is to contain, recover, and dispose of subsurface petroleum. Installation of a cutoff wall and extraction trench will provide a means to collect and control subsurface petroleum. The corrective action goal for oil is to remove subsurface petroleum in two areas north and down-gradient of the proposed cutoff wall. The removal will reduce the risk of degradation of groundwater and surface water quality. The intercepted flows will be treated to remove petroleum and clean water will be discharged to the river. The excavated areas will be backfilled with clean material.
