CV Link and the Environment, part 2 hazardmaterials

Hazards and hazardous materials

CV Link could create a significant hazard to the public or the environment if the pad-mounted
transformers located alongside the route are removed. If the pad-mounted or pole-mounted transformers situated immediately adjacent to the CV Link alignment must be removed during construction activities, they will be tested for PCBs prior to their removal and disposal. If PCBs are identified, the transformers and associated fluids shall be transported offsite and disposed of in accordance with the standards and requirements of the Riverside County Department of Environmental Health, including draining of materials into approved containers, and secured transport to approved disposal facilities.
