Document Description
The Federal Aviation Administration intends to remediate lead contaminated surface soil and to decommission a non-directional beacon communications tower and associated structure located in Proberta, Tehama County. Associated structures include a fenced compound with the tower, gravel pad, communication building, Z-markers/anchors, and four remnant tower footings. Each remnant tower footing contained a communication at one time, but now the footing and anchors are all that remain. These remnant tower footings are approximately eight feet square, three feet tall and six feet below grade, while the Z-markers/anchors vary in height from one foot to over six feet tall.
