Hazardous Waste Post Closure Permit for former Baron Blakeslee facility
Document Type
NOE - Notice of Exemption
Document Description
The Department of Toxic Substances Control (DTSC) is proposing to issue a hazardous waste post-closure permit for former Baron Blakesee facility (Facility). Honeywell International Inc. is the Operator of the Facility and Gallade Enterprises, LLC is the owner the real property and has leased it to Gallade Chemical, Inc. Pursuant to the authority granted under sections 25150, 25159 and 25159.5 of the California Health and Safety Code, the permit is for the post-closure care of the closed hazardous waste storage and treatment facility. The Facility is subject to post-closure because required DTSC clean-up standards could not be met during closure activities. The post-closure permit will require the owner/operator to continue requirements of the California Regional Water Quality Control Board (RWQCB) Site Cleanup Requirements SCR Order No. R2-2007-0005 dated January 29, 2007 and any subsequent revisions made by RWQCB and other requirements imposed by DTSC. The post-closure permit requires the continued semi-annual groundwater monitoring of the nine groundwater monitoring wells, quarterly measuring the depth to ground water in selected groundwater monitoring wells, inspect, repair, maintain and report on the integrity and general condition of the wells, and report vapor gas soil sampling results.

Notice of Exemption

Exempt Status
Type, Section or Code
Reasons for Exemption
The proposed project will have no significant effect on the environment because, 1. No significant disturbance will occur since the groundwater monitoring wells are already in place and currently part of the RWQCB monitoring program; 2) Currently the RWQCB, as the lead agency, has undertaken clean-up of site-wide soil and ground water for the Solid Waste Management Units (SWMUs) at the Facility. As a result of remediation activities, DTSC believes that the cleanup is significantly reducing the threat to human health and environment. DTSC post closure permit is limited to Corrective Action monitoring Program. The post closure permit will require sampling and analysis of groundwater for wide variety of components in 9 wells semiannually. 3) The proposed groundwater monitoring will not affect the ongoing groundwater investigation/remediation by RWQCB; and will assure that the on-going cleanup under the RWQCB authority will not be impaired; 4) The Facility is secured with fencing and locks, and restricted to public access.
