1. The project is consistent with Class 30 as a minor cleanup action taken to prevent, minimize, stabilize, mitigate, or eliminate the release or threat of release of a hazardous waste or substance and will cost $1 million or less.
2. None of the exceptions in title 14, section 15300.2 apply to the project. The site is not on the Hazardous Waste and Substances Sites List pursuant to Government Code section 65962.5. The site is not in a known area of biological or cultural resources.
3. The project will not result in significant impact to the environment because of the following controls that are included in the approved workplan and are required to be implemented.
(a) Dust suppression measures (covering and/or watering the soil stockpiles)
will be conducted during demolition and excavation activities. Storage pile
covers with sand bag hold-downs will be used on the external clean fill
stockpile to prevent storm water runoff and general migration of the
(b) All project activities will be conducted pursuant to the means and methods
described in the IM Workplan and consistent with the HASP. The IM
Workplan contains the HASP, which incorporates DTSC, Cal OSHA and
Federal worker health and safety regulations. The workers will be trained for
hazardous waste handling and properly equipped for the impacted soil to be
(c) Work activities will be conducted on weekdays 7 am to 5 pm. Transport
departure times will be scheduled so as to avoid peak commuter traffic.
(d) All trucks will be decontaminated prior to leaving the facility. Based on the
facility location and the selected transportation, no specific traffic control
measures would be necessary. The trucks will exit the facility going east on
West Sherman Avenue, turn right (south) on South Broadway, turn right
(west) on West Albertoni Street, turn right (north) on South Vermont Avenue,
and turn right (east) on West Artesia Boulevard. The trucks will enter the 110
Freeway southbound and travel to the 405 Freeway, merge onto the 405
Freeway northbound to the 5 Freeway, and merge onto the 5 Freeway and
continue to the final disposal destination facility.
(e) Appropriate permits will be obtained from the City of Carson, the LADPW and
any other applicable agency.
(f) Air permits will not be required. Rule 1166 will not apply based on the limited
VOC levels. Best Available Control Measures from Table 1 of Rule 403 will be
implemented for particulates. Emission estimates from diesel tractor/trailers
were calculated for transportation. Based upon 50 trucks/day, the NOx
emission rate would be 2.08 lbs/day, which is well below the emission
threshold of 125 lbs/day level requiring mitigation measures in the SCAQMD
CEQA Air Quality Handbook for air impact during the transportation.
