NOE - Notice of Exemption

Document Description
DTSC has approved a draft Removal Action Workplan (RAW). The purpose of the Removal Action (RA) is to address site soils contaminated with metals, total petroleum hydrocarbons (TPH) and semi-volatile organic compounds (SVOCs). Soil impacted with metals, TPH and SVOCs, with contaminant concentrations exceeding site-specific cleanup goals, will be excavated and transported offsite for disposal. Six areas within the project area have been identified for excavation. An estimated 520 cubic yards of contaminated material will be removed from the Site. Excavated soil will be stockpiled onsite prior to disposal. Stockpiled soil will be loaded onto trucks for transport to a licensed landfill. This removal action will reduce or eliminate a contaminated source that poses a threat to human health.

Reasons for Exemption
1. The removal will be limited to approximately 520 cubic yards of excavated soil and backfilled with approximately 520 cubic yards of clean fill. 2. Actual excavation activities will be of short duration, lasting only about three weeks. The total time from contractor mobilization to site restoration will be about eight weeks. Dust control measures will be in place. 3. Excavation will be conducted in the already fenced area and no pedestrians or vehicles can enter the Site accidentally. 4. All fieldwork will be conducted according to a site-specific Health and Safety Plan and only properly trained personnel will be employed. Licensed contractors and transporters will also be used. 5. A maximum of 25 truckloads of contaminated soil will be generated. Approximately 25 truckloads of clean soil will be brought to the Site. All trucks transporting hazardous material will be covered and be driven by registered hazardous waste haulers. All vehicles will follow a designated route to the interstate freeway and will travel during non-commute hours. 6. The site is in a previously developed area. There is no evidence of sensitive habitat nearby. No areas of cultural significance have been identified in the project area. Based on the short duration of the project, the controls that will be implemented for worker safety and the proper management of the wastes generated, there is no possibility that a significant effect on the environment will occur.
