Oakridge Fire

Emergency Site Assessment - oakridge fire In November of 2008, wildfires burned approximately 500 of 600 mobile homes at the Oakridge Mobile home Park. The Brownfields Program provided emergency Phase II sampling and analysis of ash and soil at the site, and of storm-water leaving the site to assess the presence of heavy metals, polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs), and asbestos. This work was done to protect the health and safety of surrounding residents and to mitigate any potential environmental damage from the storm-water carrying these materials into the ocean.
