NOE - Notice of Exemption

Document Description
The project is the approval of an Expedited Removal Action (ERA) Workplan for the construction of a dual phase extraction system (DPE) system for removal of soil vapor and groundwater that is impacted with volatile organic compounds (VOC's). This ERA is an interim measure to remove soil vapor coming from soil and groundwater underneath Building 3 of the Site. In the event the DPE cannot remove soil contamination to the cleanup goals for the Site, then soil excavation and offsite disposal will be performed. The purpose is to remove or reduce the human health-based risk associated with the vapor coming from soil and groundwater underneath the building.

Reasons for Exemption
1. Although the site is on the Hazardous Waste and Substances Sites List, the activities are designed to remediate the site and remove hazards to public health and the environment. 2. The project is exempt because the activities will have no potential for a significant impact due to project controls that will be implemented during the project as summarized below. 3. A California-state licensed construction contractor will conduct the excavation activities associated with installation of the dual phase system. Fieldwork will be conducted the following safety guidelines provided in a site-specific health and safety plan (SSHSP) prepared specifically for the project. The SSHSP was prepared in accordance with guidelines set forth in Title 8 of the California Code Regulations, Section 5192 and includes but is not limited to project controls for heavy equipment safety operations, air monitoring for on and off-site emissions, personal protective equipment, and controls of open trenches for worker safety as described below.
