The California Department of Toxic Substances Control (DTSC) and the Presidio Trust released the Draft Remedial Action Work Plan on January 28, 2013.
The Barnard Avenue Protected Range is a former small arms firing range located between Barnard Avenue and Quarry Road in the western tributary of the Tennessee Hollow Watershed. The southwestern half of the BAPR is covered by Landfill E, a former Army landfill, which was capped with a soil cover in summer 2011. The northeastern half of the BAPR receives runoff from Landfill E.
Soil at the BAPR contains metals, petroleum hydrocarbons, and pesticides at concentrations exceeding levels that are protective of ecological species. The contamination does not pose a risk to human health. The source of the contaminants is believed to be runoff from Landfill E before it was capped with a soil cover. No impacts from the former firing range have been found.
The Public Comment Period on the Draft Removal Action Work Plan is open from January 28 to February 27, 2013. Learn more >>
