WHAT THE MEASURE IS SHOWING

WHY THIS MEASURE IS IMPORTANT

TECHNICAL CONSIDERATIONS

  • Data source: GEOTRACKER. Period July 1, 2015 to June 30, 2016.
  • Unit of Measure: Number of cases where human health is controlled.
  • Data Definitions: Active Cases: The number of cases overseen by Regional Boards that had an Open status as of June 30, 2016. Inactive Cases: Include cases where there is no funding or resources available to work on the case. Cases With Human Health Exposure Controlled: human health exposure is controlled either because the source of the contamination has been identified, the extent and magnitude of soil and groundwater contamination is defined or that human health risk assessment has been performed. Cases Where Human Health Exposure is Not Controlled: An unacceptable human health risk is determined to be present. Cases Pending Determination: Include cases for which there is insufficient data to determine that human health exposure is controlled and those cases for which no data has been entered in the databases.

GLOSSARY:

Military Sites - Department of Defense Program
Decades of defense activities have degraded water quality on and around federally-owned facilities. Working with other agencies, the Regional Boards are involved with remedial investigation and cleanup actions. Agreements with the Department of Defense provide for accelerated cleanups at military bases and other Defense sites scheduled for closure and reuse. Site investigation and cleanup procedures are consistent with State laws and regulations as well as applicable provisions of the Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation and Liability Act (CERCLA) which guides the federal Superfund program.

Number of cleanup cases with human health exposure conrolled
Means a count of all open Water Board-lead cases and Shared-lead cases where human health exposure has been evaluated as of the end of the Fiscal Year.

Active Remediation
Active remediation comprises the phase(s) of work where the actual construction or implementation of activities to accomplish cleanup at a site occurs.

Case Closure
A site cleanup qualifies to receive a "No Further Action" (closure) letter once the owner or operator meets all appropriate corrective action requirements. After this occurs, the county agency or regional board will inform the responsible party in writing that no further work is required.

Number of cleanup cases groundwater contaminant migration under control
Means a count of all open Water Board-lead cases and Shared-lead cases where groundwater contaminant migration has been evaluated as of the end of the Fiscal Year.
