Cleanup and Abatement Order R6T-2022-(PROPOSED) for Lake Tahoe Laundry Works

Project Information

The Lahontan Water Board intends to issue Cleanup and Abatement Order Number R6T-2022-PROPOSED (proposed CAO) within the year. The proposed CAO names Seven Springs Limited Partnership, Fox Capital Management Corporation, Bobby Pages, Inc. and Connolly Development, Inc. as “Dischargers and orders cleanup of discharges of solvent wastes from the former Lake Tahoe Laundry Works (Site). The discharges have resulted in violations of prohibitions contained in the Water Board’s Water Quality Control Plan.

The proposed CAO is being issued to further address the regional perchloroethylene (PCE) groundwater plume originating from the Site. The Lahontan Water Board previously issued Cleanup and Abatement Order R6T-2017-0022 on May 12, 2017, to investigate and cleanup contamination originating from the Site. The proposed CAO now requires the Dischargers to (1) Develop and Submit a Conceptual Site Model, (2) Prepare and Submit a Sampling and Analysis Plan and Quality Assurance Project Plan, (3) Develop, Submit, and Implement Site Investigation Work Plan(s), (4) Develop, Submit, and Implement a Monitoring Well Installation Work Plan, (5) Develop, Submit, and Implement a Vapor Intrusion Investigation Work Plan, (6) Prepare and Submit a Human Health and Ecological Risk Assessment (HHERA), (7) Conduct Remedial Action, (8) Prepare and Submit a Public Participation Plan, and (9) Conduct Monitoring. These actions are needed to protect human health and the environment, and existing and potential beneficial uses, including the restoration of the drinking water aquifer for human consumption.
