Local Input Helps Shape New Cleanup Plan

Local community input has helped shape a new cleanup plan for the former PureGro property. That new plan is detailed in the draft Remedial Action Plan (RAP) issued on November 13 by the Department of Toxic Substances Control (DTSC). Of the five different options evaluated by DTSC, the proposed cleanup focuses on soil removal and creation of a residential buffer zone between the property and nearby neighborhood. After public comments on the draft RAP and approval of the RAP by DTSC, the stockpile will be removed in early 2020 and the rest of the cleanup begun later in the year.

You are invited to learn more about the new cleanup plan at a community meeting and open house on Thursday evening, December 5, from 6:00 pm to 8:00 pm at the American Citizen Club (890 B Street in Brawley). The meeting begins with an open house where you can talk with project representatives and explore informative posters. DTSC will then accept written and verbal comments on the draft Remedial Action Plan (RAP) during the remainder of the meeting. You can also send written comments to DTSC by using the comment form provided with DTSC’s recent factsheet. After considering all public comments received, DTSC will then approve the RAP or approve it with modifications. Once approved, the cleanup plan will be implemented beginning in early 2020.
