Parcel E: (a link to EPA ID# CA1170090087)
This 160-acre parcel is primarily undeveloped and was formerly used for landfilling and other waste disposal. Investigations indicate that the soil and groundwater are contaminated with VOCs, petroleum, PCBs, heavy metals, and pesticides. Two removal actions occurred in 1997 on Parcel E; installation of sheet piles to contain contaminated groundwater at the site of the waste oil reclamation ponds and installation of a sheet piles around the landfill/Bay Fill area. The RI was completed in 1997 and the FS is currently being revised and will be submitted in Spring 2001. The ROD is scheduled for July 2003.

Groundwater, sediments, soil, and surface water are contaminated with fuels, pesticides, heavy metals, PCBs, and volatile organic compounds (VOCs). Soil also contains asbestos. A landfill located on Parcel E also contains radium dials. People who accidentally ingest or come in direct contact with contaminated soils, sediments, surface water, or groundwater may face a health risk. Potential threats may also be presented by off-gas from VOCs, particularly vinyl chloride, present in hot spots in soil and groundwater.
The public information repositories for the site are at the following locations:
