Guadalupe Restoration Project Conditional Use Permit

In 2012, the request by UNION OIL CO. / CHEVRON to transport up to 500,000 cubic yards of additional Non-Hazardous Impacted Soil, via truck, to the City of Santa Maria Landfill from the existing remedial work area of the Guadalupe Oil Field was approved. The transported material would be used as cover material used for closing of landfill cells. Subsequent to this approval, CHEVRON is currently requesting a haul route change to use Willow Road then Highway 101 to access the landfill. A second Environmental Impact Report Addendum to the 2005 Supplemental Environmental Impact Report (SEIR) for the Guadalupe Restoration Project has been prepared to address the environmental impacts that may be associated with this request. The project site is within the Rural Lands and Recreation land use categories and is located at 2184 Thornberry Road, throughout various locations within the approximate 3,000-acre abandoned oil field within the Nipomo Dunes, approximately 3 miles west of the City of Guadalupe. For further information about this project, please contact John McKenzie at 805-781-5452 or Ellen Carroll at 805-781-5010.

To help insure off-site traffic safety, Chevron currently maintains a 'Complaint Hotline' for the public to call (800) 746-8171.
