SoCalGas is rushing the clean-up of their toxic compressor station across the street from an elementary school in a disadvantaged Latino community in West Ventura. In addition to concerns about their clean-up job, this is also an attempt to double the size of their historically faulty and explosive site.
NASA has labled the site a "super emitter" of methane and it has a history of multiple leaks in the past. It has also been home to numerous industrial uses over the decades. As a result, the soil and facilities are contaminated with lead, diesel fuel, and a host of other known carcinogens.
The plan SoCalGas submitted to the state of California to clean up the toxic soil on their site is incomplete and needs a full Environmental Impact Review.
Tell your local elected officials and the Department of Toxic Substance Control that we need a bilingual, inclusive community hearing to get more answers, and we need to ensure an Environmental Impact Review is done before any clean-up starts.
