The California Department of Toxic Substances Control (DTSC) has permitted a brief pause on daily air sampling and monitoring both onsite and at offsite locations to allow our personnel to be with their families over the holiday, beginning Friday, May 28, at approximately 7 a.m. Additionally, onsite equipment for air monitoring stations will be refurbished on Tuesday, June 1, to prepare for upcoming work. The air sampling and monitoring will resume at approximately 7 a.m., Wednesday June 2.
