Background

The Del Amo site is located in Los Angeles. Industrial operations on the 280-acre area from 1943 to 1972 produced synthetic rubber, first for the United States government during World War II and later for the Shell Oil Company. Facility operations contaminated soil and groundwater with hazardous chemicals. Today, the site’s long-term cleanup is ongoing. Most of the area has been redeveloped as an industrial park.
