The City does not have local regulatory authority and will assist the Water Board and other supporting state and county agencies in a thorough and rapid environmental investigation.

Update on Carousel Tract Remedial Action Plan [ New! ]
- Carson City Council Town Hall Meeting, August 29, 2016
Design Engineer: AECOM ( Glen Davis glen.t.davis@aecom.com )
Contractor: American Integrated Service
Public Outreach: 310-857-2335

Soil remediation at the Carousel Tract will commence in April 2016. It involves placement of pipelines ranging from 6" to 14", encased in a 2-sack slurry, placed on the (below) highlighted streets at a depth range of approx. 36"-42" to the top of the encasement. The pipelines are used to channel the extracted materials from the Soil Vapor Extraction operation. As part of this project --but will be permitted separately-- the water company will also be relocating their water mainline. AT&T is also proposing to remove their infrastructure from below ground onto existing wooden poles owned by Southern California Edison (SCE). This is NOT a City project and calls/concerns from the public shall be directed to the Public Outreach Team Hotline number above. It is estimated for this work to be completed in 5 years. Other than the pipeline work, there will be significant excavation and improvement within private properties. The contractor's staging area is located on the west side of Main Street, just north of Lomita Blvd. There may be an increase of commercial vehicles using Lomita between Main Street and Neptune Ave.

There will be several permit applications for the work done within the public R/W (backfill, asphalt, speed humps, striping, traffic control, etc. The work is isolated per cluster (below). There are 27 clusters and each cluster will be permitted and bonded separately. All disturbances within the public R/W and damages to existing improvements will be replaced-in-kind. The contractor will perform a grind and overlay of all the affected streets after all work has been completed.
