The California Department of Toxic Substance Control (DTSC) has directed the Ascon team to prepare for the excavation and transportation offsite of Pit F materials to a permitted landfill in central California.
A specialized remedial team and equipment necessary to complete the excavation of the materials in Pit F began arriving onsite in March. DTSC plans to host an online public meeting on May 6, and excavation work is expected to begin in June. All work is overseen by DTSC. The Pit F tent and its air treatment system are also under permits from the South Coast Air Quality Management District (SCAQMD).
