Oil Field Restoration

Since 2010, Padre has provided remediation, groundwater monitoring, air monitoring, biological monitoring, and reporting services for the Guadalupe Restoration Project located in southern San Luis Obispo County, approximately 3 miles west of the City of Guadalupe. During this time, over 175,000 tons of hydrocarbon-affected soil has been excavated and transported to the Santa Maria Sanitary Landfill. Air monitoring is conducted during the course of excavations. Groundwater monitoring is conducted throughout the year and includes site-wide gauging and sampling. Results of these activities are reported on a semi-annual basis and submitted to the Regional Water Quality Control Board, California Coastal Commission, California Department of Fish and Wildlife, United States Fish and Wildlife Service, and the San Luis Obispo County Department of Planning and Building. Biological monitoring and restoration activities are conducted throughout the year and include botanical monitoring, wildlife monitoring, restoration activities, native plant propagation, and weed eradication. Results of these activities are reported on a quarterly basis.
