Re:  Contaminated Soil Cleanup Project at 2033 South Blosser Road in Santa Maria

Chevron Environmental Management Company has applied to the Santa Barbara County Air Pollution Control District (District) for a permit to excavate and remove approximately 5,000 cubic yards of soil contaminated by remnant oilfield road materials located at 2033 South Blosser Road in Santa Maria.  Excavated material will be loaded on trucks for transportation offsite to a State‑approved disposal facility.  The project site is within 1,320 feet of the property boundary of Roberto and Dr. Francisco Jiménez Elementary School, located at 1970 Biscayne Street, and Liberty Elementary School, located at 1300 Sonya Lane in Santa Maria.

The District has included conditions in the Permit to Operate for this project that will minimize the release of emissions into the atmosphere during the excavation, handling, and transport of the contaminated material.  Before our agency issues this permit, state law requires that we notify you, since you are either the parent/guardian of a student attending the school or are a resident or business located within 1,000 feet of the site.  We are providing you an opportunity to review and comment on this proposed permitting action.  Further, prior to issuing the final permit, we will submit to the permit’s administrative file our written responses to any comments we receive during the comment period.

A copy of the draft permit document (Permit to Operate 15460) is available for review at the following locations: the District office (260 North San Antonio Road, Suite A, Santa Barbara) and on the District website.

Please provide any comments to us within 30 days of the receipt of this notice : (Attn: Charlotte Mountain, 805-961-8877, [email protected]).
