Abstract:

“San Diego County’s Corrective Action Program: Working with Your Local Agency to Solve Local Problems”

This presentation will discuss San Diego County Department of Environmental Health (DEH) new Corrective Action Program.  The authority to oversee Corrective Action cases was delegated from the State Department of Toxic Substances Control (DTSC) to DEH in March 2014.  This presentation will outline what Corrective Action is, the rules and regulations that govern Corrective Action and when Corrective Action will be required.  A general overview of the Corrective Action process and case study involving a PBR (permit by rule) closure will also be given.  As well as showing the advantages to working with your local agency through the Corrective Action Process.

RESOLUTION OF CONTAMINATED PROPERTIES THROUGH THE “VOLUNTARY ASSISTANCE PROGRAM”

The Voluntary Assistance Program allows property owners to enter into a contractual agreement for DEH to oversee the assessment and mitigation of any contamination on their property that poses or may pose a threat to public health or the environment. 

The program assists applicants to achieve their goals, provide third-party review and consultation, and issue official concurrence or “Closure Letter”.                                                                                                                      

The authority for implementing the VAP Program is found in the California Health and Safety Code, Section 101480-101490.  The process is often driven by real estate transactions or re-development plans. 


Cost:

$30 for members, $35 for non-members, add $5 if reservation is not received by 5pm the Friday before. Online registration will end at noon on the Monday before the event. Walk-ins with no reservation will be charged an extra $10 and be asked to wait until those with reservations are seated.
