SEQUOIA AND KINGS CANYON NATIONAL PARKS, THREE RIVERS, CALIFORNIA— The National Park Service (NPS), in coordination with Environmental Cost Management, Inc. (ECM), is notifying the public of environmental work being considered at an old dump site (1931-65) located in Sequoia and Kings Canyon National Parks (SEKI) in Tulare County, California. (See attached maps.)

In spring 2014, sampling of waste material and related soils would be done in the dump area to determine appropriate response activities. The NPS is in the process of assessing this site in accordance with the Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation, and Liability Act (CERCLA). The CERCLA process has a key community outreach component, established by Congress in 1986, to ensure that citizens living or working near CERCLA sites are given the opportunity to influence decisions affecting their community.

In order to be notified of updates to this project or other CERCLA projects at SEKI, an interested member of the public may leave a comment with contact information on the NPS’s Planning, Environment, and Public Comment (PEPC) website at http://parkplanning.nps.gov/LowerKaweahCERCLA or write to:

Sequoia and Kings Canyon National Parks
Attn: Superintendent’s Office, Lower Kaweah Site
47050 Generals Highway
Three Rivers, CA 93271

In addition to individual requests for information, notification and documents associated with this project and other CERCLA projects at SEKI will be placed in public repositories at local public libraries and on the NPS’s PEPC website at http://parkplanning.nps.gov/LowerKaweahCERCLA. If you have specific project-related questions or concerns, you may contact ECM Representative Holly Trejo at htreyo@ecostmanage.com or (510) 964-4399 or Safety Manager Todd Payne at SEKI at (559) 565-3108.
