Document Description
The project consist of: 1) removal of high viscosity surface flow remains (oil remains) that have migrated off East Cat Canyon Oil Field property (Property); and, 2) management of oil remains that are located on the Property site. Oil remains from off-Property areas will be excavated, exported to an approved disposal site and then the sites will be graded and filled with clean fill material and compacted to match natural creek contours. Oil remains located on the Property site will be managed in place by increasing native vegetation cover. All disturbed areas will be restored through installation of erosion control matting, planting of native plants, and broadcasting of native seed mix. A monitoring program of the restoration areas will be implemented and will include remedial and restoration maintenance activities if needed. Buffer areas will be delineated and monitored at locations on the Property to identify future material flows before leaving the Property. Existing oil field roads and well pads within the Property will be used for staging and stockpiling to the greatest extent possible. Equipment used to complete this project includes an excavator, front-end loader, tracked skid-steer, off-road dump truck, over-road dump trucks, sheepsfoot compactor, water truck, and pick-up trucks.
