The South Bay Asbestos Area site is at the northern end of the Santa Clara Valley and at the southern end of the San Francisco Bay, in San Jose, California. From 1953 to 1982 the site operated as an asbestos-cement pipe manufacturing plant with asbestos-contaminated waste being disposed of onsite in three landfills. In 1983 the State collected soil samples which revealed that asbestos was randomly distributed throughout AAlviso, including the Alviso Rim levee. The State also determined that the Guadalupe River levee contained asbestos-contaminated waste debris and soil. The first ROD addressed contamination at the rim levee. The second and final ROD addresses the asbestos contamination found at the remainder of the site. The primary contaminant of concern affecting the soil, debris, and air is asbestos. The selected remedial action includes paving approximately 128,500 square yards of an asbestos-contaminated truck yard and industrial yard; controlling dust emissions through monthly wet sweeping of streets; offsite disposal of asbestos-contaminated debris; air monitoring; and implementation of deed restrictions and other institutional controls.
