The California Department of Toxic Substances Control (DTSC) invites you to review and comment on the draft Response Plan for the Former Southland Steel Facility (Site) located on Alameda Street, south of Randolph Street, in the City of Huntington Park, California.
The parcels investigated consist of the former Southland Steel facility and include all of the property between the railroad spur from Randolph Street and Alameda Street to the east. Environmental investigations from 2004 – 2009, found elevated levels of volatile organic compounds (VOCs), poly aromatic hybrocarbons (PAHs), and heavy metals (arsenic, cadmium and lead) in the soil, soil vapor and groundwater.
The southern-most parcel is currently used as an automobile service facility, and the remaining parcels are used for parking cars. All of the buildings at the Site have been demolished and removed. Asphalt pavement or concrete flooring from the previous facility remain and serve the parking needs of the automobile service facility. Manufacturing and light industrial facilities surround the Site.
An initial draft Removal Action Workplan (RAW) was prepared on May 4, 2012 for the removal of the shallow soil contamination. The draft RAW was approved by DTSC but not implemented due to funding constraints. The current draft Response Plan proposes a cleanup plan to address the contamination. DTSC would oversee the proposed cleanup of the contamination at the Site, and encourages your participation in the cleanup decision-making process.
