The 450-acre Atlas Mine Area is part of the Atlas Asbestos Mine site in Fresno County, California. The site consists of four geographically distinct areas (the Atlas Mine Area, the Clear Creek Management Area (CCMA), the Ponding Basin of the California Aqueduct, and the City of Coalinga). The Mine Area includes three open pit asbestos mine surfaces, stockpiles of asbestos waste material, an abandoned mill building, a settling pond, and debris. A 1989 Record of Decision (ROD) for the City of Coalinga Operable Unit addressed cleanup of asbestos-contaminated soil in Coalinga, California by burying the contaminated material in a waste management unit with an impermeable cap. The ROD is designed to control the release of asbestos from the Mine Area. The primary contaminant of concern affecting the soil, sediment, debris, surface water, and air is asbestos, an inorganic. The selected remedial action for the site includes paving the road through the Mine Area or implementing an appropriate road maintenance alternative; constructing stream diversions, sediment trapping dams, and other slope stabilization elements, and conducting a revegetation pilot project.
