Cr6 Background Study Update for Hinkley Groundwater Remediation Project

Project Navigator, Ltd. (PNL) has been facilitating outreach to the Hinkley Community focusing recently on the findings from USGS’s ongoing Cr6 Background Study. With the expectation of a final report by 2020, Community members have been learning of the multiple causes of Cr6 concentrations in groundwater. Hinkley residents gathered in April, 2019 at the Hinkley Community Center to listen to presentations by PNL’s Dr. Raudel Sanchez, and USGS’s Dr. John Izbicki covering, respectively, the overall status of PG&E’s Cr6 groundwater remediation program, and the Background Study. Representatives from the Lahontan Regional Water Quality Control Board and the Pacific Gas and Electric (PG&E) also made comments.
