Final Preliminary Endangerment Assessment


The San Carlos School District has completed a Preliminary Endangerment Assessment (PEA) related to the recent (2015-2016) expansion and renovation of the Central Middle School-Arroyo School campus. The PEA entailed soil sampling and waste removal done under the oversight of the California Department of Toxic Substances Control (DTSC) as prescribed by the “Process for Proposed New or Expanding School Sites” in accordance with Education Code Sections: 17210, 17210.1, 17213.1, and 17213.2. The assessment was conducted to determine whether a release or threatened release of hazardous substances exists that may be related to current or historical usage of the school site, and to evaluate the potential risk, if any, to human health and the environment. The conclusion of the PEA is that there is no known hazardous material at the school site.

A copy of the PEA report has been made available by the San Carlos School District for a 30-day public review and comment period, beginning on February 16, 2018 and ending on March 19, 2018. The PEA report is available for inspection during normal weekday business hours, in the San Carlos School District administrative office, located at 1200 Industrial Road, Unit 9, San Carlos, California. Comments will be reviewed by the DTSC project manager and addressed during the scheduled monthly school board meeting following the 30-day public review period that is tentatively scheduled for March 22, 2018.
