NOE - Notice of Exemption
DTSC, pursuant to authority granted under Chapter 6.8, Division 20, sections 25323.1 and 25356.1 pursuant to the Health and Safety Code (H&SC) approved a RAW as submitted on 03 October, 2013, by Padre Associates, Inc. (PAI). The purpose of the project is to mitigate impacted soil that exceeds the project-specific residential (RSL) cleanup levels in order to minimize human exposure to the identified chemicals of concerns (COCs). The RAW focuses on excavation of approximately 1,500 cubic yards of soil impacted with elevated levels of lead, arsenic and coppery from previous site activities which will then be transported by trucks for off-site disposal at an appropriate permitted landfill facility. Implementation of the RAW is scheduled commence in the spring 2014 and is expected to take approximately 90 days to complete. Soil confirmation sampling will occur after excavation of the contaminated soil. Following the removal activities, the Site will be restored using clean imported fill material and construction of new sidewalks.
The project is a minor action designed to prevent, minimize, stabilize, mitigate or eliminate the release or threat of release of hazardous waste or hazardous substances.
The project will not exceed $1 million in cost.
The project does not involve the onsite use of a hazardous waste incinerator or thermal treatment unit or the relocation of residences or businesses, and does not involve the potential release into the air of volatile organic compounds as defined in Health and Safety Code Section 25123.
Cumulative Impact. The project will not result in cumulative impacts because it is designed to be a short-term, final remedy that would not lead to a succession of projects of the same type in the same place over time.
Significant Effect. The environmental safeguards and monitoring procedures that are enforceable and made a condition of project approval will prevent unusual circumstances from occurring so that there is no possibility that the project will have a significant effect on the environment.
Scenic Highways. The project will not damage scenic resources, including but not limited to, trees, historic buildings, rock outcroppings, or similar resources, because it is not located within a highway officially designated as a state scenic highway.
Hazardous Waste Sites. The project is not located on a site which is included on any list compiled pursuant to Section 65962.5 of the Government Code.
