California Rehabilitation Center Monitoring Well Install
Document Type
NOE - Notice of Exemption
Document Description
Four heating oil underground storage tanks were removed in July 1988 at the California Rehabilitation Center (CDC) power plant area. One of the tanks leaked into the subsurface soil and was found to have observable free product (contamination) in the excavation cavity. The Santa Ana Regional Water Quality Control Board (Regional Board) has recently directed CDCR to further define the contamination plume to the east of the power plant area. In order to define the contamination plume, two new monitoring wells will be installed on CRC property and a single monitoring well will be installed at the adjacent Navy property. The proposed well locations are within an already highly disturbed area. A review of the monitoring well locations determined there will be no significant impacts to historical resources. Please see the attached figure.
