The Hixson Metal Finishing Plant is zoned as industrial by the City of Newport Beach
In accordance with CEQA, the SCAQMD is the Lead Agency and has prepared a MND for the project identified above. The purpose of the Notice of Intent is to notify the public that the Draft MND is available for public review and comment. Hixson Metal Finishing (Hixson or Facility) is proposing a Risk Reduction Project (proposed project) at its Newport Beach Facility located at 829 Production Place, Newport Beach, CA 92663, which would consist of on-site tank, spray booth, and oven relocation; installation of additional air pollution control systems; construction of permanent total enclosures; installation of covers on waste water treatment tanks, preparation and implementation of an improved housekeeping and dust mitigation plan, and improvements to the Facility's electrical system. The Facility currently conducts anodizing, testing, plating, and coating operations for aerospace and defense industries. The overall focus of the proposed project is to reduce the Facility's emissions, primarily of hexavalent chromium (CrVI), in order to comply with an approved Risk Reduction Plan that was required under SCAQMD Rule 1402. The following environmental topic areas were identified as having the potential to be affected by the proposed project: aesthetics, air quality and greenhouse gas emissions; biological resources; energy; geology and soils; hazards and hazardous materials; hydrology and water quality; noise; public services; solid and hazardous waste; transportation and traffic; and mandatory findings of significance. However the analysis of these environmental topic areas in the Draft MND concluded that the proposed project would not generate any significant adverse environmental impacts. The Facility is included in the DTSC EnviroStor Database due to historic release.
