RWQCB Issues Tentative Order to Rescind Site Cleanup Requirements

August 22, 2005

The State of California Regional Water Quality Control Board has issued two tentative orders for rescission of Orders of Site Cleanup Requirements for the Zeneca site (Order No. 01-101) and for the Richmond Field Station (Order No. 01-102). This action is being taken because lead agency oversight has been transferred from the Board to the Department of Toxics Substances Control. The tentative rescission orders for the Zeneca site and for the Richmond Field Station provide  more information on this Board action.

Approval of these orders will be considered at the Board hearing on October 19, 2005 at the Elihu Harris State Building Auditorium, 1515 Clay St., Oakland starting at 9:00 AM. Comments to the tentative orders are due to the Board by September 16, 2005. See the cover letter for instructions.
