Site Clean Up


From 1915 until 2002 the site was used first as a refinery (until 1950) and later as a crude oil storage and transfer facility. Those operations led to soil and groundwater contamination which require environmental cleanup, also known as remediation. The property is currently being cleaned up under the direction of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (US EPA) working in concert with Chevron and a number of other government agencies. A human health risk assessment (HHRA) found that the site poses no threat to nearby residents under current conditions. An ecological risk assessment was also undertaken to determine risks to plants and animals on the site. Following extensive remediation by Chevron, the US EPA delisted the sites surface soils from the “Superfund” National Priorities List. The site is ready for beneficial reuse, and Cenergy Power is leasing the site and constructing a solar electricity generation facility. Chevron continues to manage groundwater remediation at the site.

Remediation plan documents and technical data reports are available at EPA’s website and also at the Fillmore City Hall. Below are links to additional information and materials regarding the site.
