NOE - Notice of Exemption

Document Description
The project involves the 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 March 4, 2010 by AMEC Geomatrix, Inc. on behalf of the Kern County Waste Management Department. The RAW focuses on treatment of soil impacted, by residual petroleum constituents at the former VenVirotek site located on the Arvin Sanitary Landfill (Arvin SLF). Previous soil assessment indicates a portion of the soil at the Arvin SLF contains soluble lead concentrations in the excess of the hazardous waste threshold (soluble lead of 5 milligrams per liter). The portion of affected soil will be excavated at the VenVirotek site, transported within the landfill property and placed on a prepared pad for treatment. Successful treatment of the soil (Soluble lead of 4 milligrams per liter) will allow the soil to be accepted as foundation soil for the final cover of the Arvin Sanitary Landfill.
