ENV 10-0005, Benton Burn Site Remediation Project
Document Type
MND - Mitigated Negative Declaration
Present Land Use
The site lies primarily in a ravine where the surrounding areas have been developed with residences. One parcel is undeveloped, and part of an open space area for a subdivision in the City of Escondido. It is zoned PD-R-1.0 with a GPD of Estate I.

Document Description
The proposed project is the remediation of the former Benton Dump site by implementing the Final Remedial Action Plan Benton Burn Site, SWIS No. 37-CR-0008, dated October 5, 2009, prepared by URS for the CA Integrated Waste Management Board. The activity involves less than one acre and would consist of consolidating waste and capping the surface with an engineered soil cover. The cap would include clean soil to meet the State Minimum Standards and minimize the potential for human exposure to burn ash-containing waste present on the ground surface and in shallow soil (less than two feet). A small area of unoccupied coastal sage scrub (0.05 acre) will be removed and mitigated at a 2:1 ratio with the purchase of 0.10 acre conservation credits. The remediation will also affect 0.06 acre of a drainage area, which may be un-vegetated jurisdictional waters that would be subject to permits from US Army Corps of Engineers and/or the CA DFG. Construction activities will be limited to the hours between 8 A.M. and 5 P.M. Upon completion of construction, the project site would return to the relative appearance of existing conditions. The project would not construct any buildings and does not include lighting components. Existing non-native vegetation would be replaced by native seed mix over the soil cap.
