Document Description
The proposed project consists of the implementation of a Department of Toxic Substances Control (DTSC) approved Corrective Measures Study (CMS) submitted by Pacific Gas and Electric Company (PG&E) in accordance with Division 20, Chapter 6.5 of the California Health and Safety Code. The CMS specifies the full environmental remediation of a 72-acre former industrial waste pond known as the Shell Pond, reincorporation of the pond area into the surrounding tidal wetlands, and physical upgrading of an adjacent 22-acre, former land-disposal unit known as the Carbon Black Area. Activities include: Construction of a temporary access road, setup of a temporary Material handling and Dewatering Area, hydraulic dredging and mechanical excavation of pond sediments and contaminated soil from the bottom of the Pond, transportation of removed materials to a local landfill, removal of 82-linear feet of pond levee to reconnect the Pond basin to local wetlands, restoration of habitat for wildlife preservation, and grading and reseeding of the Carbon Black Area.
