Site Location:
Hoopa Valley Reservation, CA 95546

In 2018, the Hoopa Valley Fisheries Program uncovered an asbestos dump in the course of a fisheries restoration project. In 2019, at the Hoopa Valley Tribe's request, the Bureau of Indian Affairs (BIA) conducted a Phase I Environmental Site Assessment (ESA) of the parcel and recommended that the Tribe conduct a a sampling assessment. In 2021, the Tribe conducted a sampling assessment to determine the extent of the contamination on the parcel and estimated that a volume of 3,100 cubic yards of potentially contaminated soil would need to be excavated prior to any redevelopment or restoration of the land. At the request of the Tribe, US EPA mobilized to the site in July 2022 to conduct a removal action to remove asbestos contaminated soil and debris from the site.
