Foshay Learning Center, Seismic Modernization Project

  • The Los Angeles Unified School District’s (LAUSD) has completed a Preliminary Environmental Assessment-Equivalent (PEA-E) for the Seismic Modernization project within the Foshay Learning Center in Los Angeles, California.  The PEA-E presents the findings of environmental investigations performed and documents the removal and off‐site disposal of approximately 80 tons of soil with elevated concentrations of arsenic and lead. During future construction (currently scheduled for Spring 2017) approximately one additional cubic yard of soil containing elevated concentrations of lead is to be removed and properly disposed of off-site.  No risk currently exists as this area is currently and will remain covered with asphalt pavement until the construction begins.
