The subject site is 19.72 acres of vacant undeveloped land. Based on information gathered from interviews during the Phase I Environmental Site Assessment (ESA), the subject site was utilized as part of the Former Hawthorne Landfill, which was in operation from the early 1920s until 1972. Easements for electrical transmission lines were granted in 1988.
A Phase I ESA was conducted on the 19.72-acre site in October 2016. Based on the findings of the Phase I ESA, additional environmental investigation was recommended to identify the potential presence of asbestos-containing materials, hazardous waste, and polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs), polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs), and heavy metals associated with the former Hawthorne Landfill buried burn debris.
