Redman Equipment and Manufacturing Co. (Site)
NOE - Notice of Exemption
The Site is located within an unincorporated area of Los Angeles County, and it comprises approximately 3.13 acres of land. The Site has been utilized since 1962 to build and refurbish heat exchangers for the peteroleum industry.
Elevated levels of trichloroethene (TCE) and related compounds, particularly cis-1, 2-dichloroethene were found in fill material located in a 50' x 50' area near the center of the Site. Most of the TCE- related material is in the shallow soil (less than five feet below ground surface). A small area of shallow soil near the center of the site contains TCE- related compounds at levels that are above DTSC's protective standards. The area of contaminated soil is covered with concrete and there is no immediate risk to the surrounding community. The Final Removal Action Workplan proposes excavation and removal of upper five feet of impacted soil in the "Hot Spot" of the Site. The remedial action objectives has been defined in RAW to:
-reduce human health risks by reducing the potential for direct contact with contaminated soils;
-protect health and safety of workers and the general public during the implementation of the remedial action; and
-facilitate property development and reuse in the future.
