Workshop on Proposed Cleanup and Abatement Order for Pacific Gas and Electric Company Hinkley Groundwater Cleanup
On January 21, 2015, Lahontan Regional Water Quality Control Board staff released a proposed Cleanup and Abatement Order (CAO) for public review and comment. The proposed CAO consolidates requirements and replaces 15 previous orders; directs PG&E to continue to remediate chromium-contaminated groundwater; requires refinement of the chromium plume boundaries; sets plume capture requirements; and sets deadlines to meet interim cleanup targets. A monitoring and reporting program is included.
Written comments are due on the proposed CAO by 5 p.m. on March 13, 2015.
To help the public understand and review the CAO, Water Board staff is hosting a public information meeting during the comment period.
When: Thursday, February 26, 2015, from 6 to 8 p.m.
Where: Hinkley Community and Senior Center, 35997 Mountain View Road, Hinkley, CA
Purpose: Provide information and discussion on the proposed CAO. Hinkley residents and other interested stakeholders are encouraged to participate and ask questions.
This meeting is for information purposes only; it is not a formal Water Board hearing. No Water Board decision or direction will result from this meeting. Written comments on the CAO will be accepted at the meeting; however, verbal comments will not be recorded or included in the record for consideration.
Spanish language interpreters will be available at the meeting.
