Document Description
The project involves approval of a Removal Action Workplan (RAW) by the Department of Toxic Substances Control (DTSC) pursuant to Health and Safety Code, chapter 6.8, as submitted on February 25, 2008 by the Los Angeles Unified School District (LAUSD). The RAW focuses on excavation and removal of soils impacted with elevated levels of arsenic, lead, chlordanes, 4,4-DDD, 4,4-DDE, 4,4-DDT, dieldrin, toxaphene and total petroleum hydrocarbons (TPHs) onsite. The purpose of the project is to mitigate impacted soils that exceed the project-specific human health risk criteria to minimize human exposure to the identified chemicals of concern (COCs). The estimated volume of impacted soils is 104 cubic yards or approximately 10 truckloads. The cleanup levels for these COCs are: DTSC soil screening level of 255 milligrams per kilogram (mg/kg) for lead at school sites, DTSC risk management level of 12 mg/kg for 4,4-DDD, 1.60 mg/kg for 4,4-DDE and 4,4-DDT, 0.035 mg/kg for dieldrin, 0.46 mg/kg for toxaphene, respectively in residential soils.
