Sacramento Yard-Contaminant Characterization, Groundwater Monitoring Well Installation
Document Type
NOE - Notice of Exemption

Document Description
DWR's Sacramento Maintenance Yard has suspected soil and groundwater contamination associated with a historic fuel storage area. Preliminary geological studies were made in previous years, and currently the proposed installation of groundwater monitoring wells will help to characterize the contamination as required by the Central Valley Regional Water Quality Control Board. The project includes all geologic studies proposed in 2010 to collect information needed for planning appropriate remedial actions to abate any potential adverse public health or environmental impacts. The proposed wells are located in open, accessible sites that will not interfere with normal community activities and land use, and during drilling all drilling materials and spoils will be contained to prevent storm water pollution. These precautionary measures will avoid or minimize all potentially significant adverse environmental impacts.
