Assessment and clean-up of sites with hazardous substances are regulated under the Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation and Liability Act (CERCLA), commonly known as the Superfund. The NPS has a responsibility under CERCLA to determine if hazardous substances, such as lead, are present in a park and to clean up the site.
The NPS has prepared a draft engineering evaluation and cost analysis report (EE/CA) for clean-up of the site. The EE/CA describes the evaluation process for a screening level risk assessment to compare contaminant levels at the site against established values for human health and ecological risk. Based on the contaminant levels at the site determined from preliminary screening, objectives for clean-up of the site to protect human health and the environment have been developed. The EE/CA also evaluates alternatives and costs to address contamination at the site.
The NPS is seeking comments on the proposed clean-up actions described in the draft EE/CA. The EE/CA is available for review and comment on the NPS Planning, Environment & Public Comment website at http://parkplanning.nps.gov/RedwoodFiringRange. Search for “Open for Comment” to locate the Redwood NP Engineering Evaluation Cost Analysis Report.
Written comments on the draft EE/CA will be accepted through August 15, 2015. Comments can be made through the website or mailed to
