Zeneca Marsh Grading Scheduled for October 6-9, 2006

October 5, 2006

Beginning October 6, 2006, grading work will be taking place in clean soils in a small portion of Eastern Stege Marsh on the Zeneca Site. The grading is necessary to smooth ruts and to lower marsh elevations to target levels designed to create additional wildlife habitat as required by the permit issued by the Army Corps of Engineers and by the Bay Conservation and Development Commission. Work will occur at the southwestern corner of the Zeneca site, whcih is next to the RFS connector trail at the intersection of the Bay Trail. The State of California Department of Toxics Substances Control is requiring that real time air monitoring for dust and hydrogen sulfide be conducted during grading activities.
