Ghirardelli was awarded a two-year contract with a one-year option to extend with the Department of Toxic Substances Control (DTSC) to support the Exide Division (Project Team) during implementation of the Removal Action Plan.
DTSC is implementing a Cleanup Plan focused on sensitive use properties within a Preliminary Investigation Area (PIA), which is the area within the 1.7-mile radius of the former facility. The Cleanup Plan includes, among other related removal action activities, excavation of lead contaminated soil from approximately 2,500 sensitive use properties in the PIA. DTSC selects properties for cleanup by using previously collected soil sample results to determine whether a sampled property meets the prioritization criteria set forth in the Cleanup Plan. DTSC has retained National Engineering and Consulting Group (NEC) to conduct work at 415 properties, and Parsons Environment and Infrastructure Group (Parsons) will conduct work at 1,610 properties.
Ghirardelli will consult with the Exide Project Team to develop management systems and strategies for tracking cleanup work progress (including contaminated soil excavation and disposal, property restoration, and compliance with applicable plans, policies, and other requirements); and will assist the Exide Project Team with day to day oversight and review of NEC and Parsons’ deliverables to help ensure success in DTSC’s implementation of its Cleanup Plan and Mitigation Monitoring and Reporting Program.
