SITE BACKGROUND

The Aerojet General Corporation site covers 5,900 acres; its northeastern edge is about a half-mile from the American River. Aerojet and its subsidiaries have manufactured liquid and solid propellant rocket engines for military and commercial applications, and the Cordova Chemical Company has operated chemical manufacturing facilities on the site. Both companies have disposed of unknown quantities of hazardous waste chemicals on the property. Site investigations and cleanup are ongoing.
