PNL staff members Dr. Raudel Sanchez and Dr. Halil Kavak continue their support of Hinkley Community outreach and technical communications concerning PG&E’s Chromium-6 (Cr-VI) groundwater remediation program in Hinkley, CA. PNL’s activities include Community presentations, topic-specific technical guidance to Community members, and the distribution of a newsletter. More is at www.HinkleyGroundwater.com.
PNL is also part of the project’s Technical Working Group, wherein USGS is studying groundwater and geophysical conditions in the Hinkley Valley in order to establish background concentrations of Cr-VI. Such information will subsequently be used by the Water Board to set final remediation targets.
