NOE - Notice of Exemption

Document Description
The Removal Action Workplan will excavate heavy metals from previous plating operations. The estimated volume of impacted soils to be removed is 420 cubic yards, between 25 to 30 truck loads. The project will mitigate impacted soils that exceed the project-specific human health and environmental risk criteria to minimize human exposure to and migration of the identified chemicals of concern (COCs). The cleanup levels for these COCs are based upon the California Human Health Screening Levels (CHHSLs): Cadmium 1.7 mg/kg; copper 3,000 mg/kg; lead 150 mg/kg; and nickel 1,600 mg/kg. The excavation is expected to be completed within 5 days. Stockpiling of soil will only occur overnight if bins or trucks are no available.
