The project includes installation and operation of a full-scale Soil Vapor Extraction (SVE) system to address elevated concentrations of volatile organic compounds (VOCs), specifically tetrachloroethylene (PCE) and trichloroethylene (TCE) detected in soil at the Bodycote Thermal Processing Facility (Site). This determination is based
upon the findings of the investigation report (July 2017) and is described in the Removal Action Workplan. Appropriate environmental screening levels were used as conservative removal action goals for the protection of human health and the environment under the current industrial land use.
1. 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. 2. The project will not exceed $1 million in cost. 3. 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. The SVE system is permitted by the SCAQMD. 4. The exceptions pursuant to Cal. Code Regs., tit. 14, § 15300.2 have been addressed as follows:
Cumulative Impact. The final remedy will not lead to a succession of projects of the same type in the same place over time.
