Activity and Use Limitations

At this site, activity and use limitations that EPA calls institutional controls are in place. Institutional controls play an important role in site remedies because they reduce exposure to contamination by limiting land or resource use. They also guide human behavior. For instance, zoning restrictions prevent land uses – such as residential uses – that are not consistent with the level of cleanup. For more background, see Institutional Controls.

Efforts to develop and implement permanent Institutional Controls to restrict residential use for the entire property within the fence line (and anywhere else needed) are underway but are not complete. The Atlantic Richfield Company, as required by the 1996 Consent Decree, caused deed restrictions to be placed on certain properties within the site. The deed restrictions prohibit residential development, drilling of water wells, and other specified uses. Similar deed restrictions will be placed on other properties within the site.
