The Coalinga Asbestos Mine site is in Fresno County, California, and is being remediated concurrently with the Atlas Asbestos Mine site. The Record of Decision (ROD) does not address the mines, but rather a separate area in the city of Coalinga, where asbestos, from the Atlas-Coalinga mines, was deposited to await handling and shipment. The site consists of four distinct areas: (1) the warehouse which was once a mining waste distribution center and which currently houses 1,600 cubic yards of mining waste; (2) a storage yard which contains asbestos-contaminated stacked pipes; (3) a shipping yard which was used as an asbestos distribution center by the Coalinga Asbestos Company; and (4) the U.S. Coalinga Company which currently stores piles of asbestos-contaminated mining waste. Subsequent sampling programs, conducted between 1983 and 1987, revealed that surface water and air also contained elevated levels of asbestos. As a result of these findings, EPA issued an Administrative Order to a major landowner, Southern Pacific Transportation Company (SPTC), requiring SPTC to conduct an additional remedial investigation and a feasibility study and to perform interim measures to stabilize the site. The primary contaminants of concern affecting the soil and debris are metals including nickel, and other inorganics including asbestos and mining wastes. The selected remedial action for this site are included.
