The Department of Toxic Substances Control (DTSC) took lead regulatory role and opened a case with a former dry cleaner in Echo Park, which was located next to a school. The owner of the former dry cleaner site retained The Reynolds Group to get some help.
TRG performed a Human Health Risk Assessment since the public school was next to the property and found low detection of PCE at the site. The low levels of PCE was monitored over a span of four months with results showing that the detection was stable.
TRG requested a case closure without requirements for mitigation and the DTSC successfully closed the site with a deed restriction.
