Document Description
Approval of a Removal Action Workplan (RAW) by the Department of Toxic Substances Control (DTSC) pursuant to Health & Safety Code chapter 6.8 as submitted on June 6, 2008 by URS Corporation. The RAW focuses on excavation and removal to mitigate soils impacted with excessive levels of total petroleum hydrocarbons as diesel (TPHd) and total petroleum hydrocarbons as oil (TPHo) onsite. The RAW focuses on excavation, removal, and off-site disposal of approximately 120 cubic yards (approximately 12 truckloads) of impacted soil. The goals of the project are to reduce or eliminate future exposure to the COCs. The cleanup levels for these COCs are: 800 parts per million (ppm) for TPHd and 800 ppm for TPHo. Site restoration may include backfilling the excavation areas with clean soil (from an offsite source or through grading operations using on-site soil) and returning any surface features or their current condition or in accordance with Site construction/grading plans approved for school construction of the Site. Project field activities are scheduled to commence in August 2008 and are expected to take approximately 15 days to complete.
