DOOR DECONSTRUCTION

  • Heavy equipment was set-up on 5 December ahead of the North Hangar door deconstruction.
  • On the morning of Friday, December 8th, deconstruction of the north hangar doors began. 

During this slow and controlled process, all six panels were lowered to the ground. All door materials will remain onsite, and no removal will take place during this time.

 

Due to the projected winds this weekend, deconstruction of the other door will take place Monday morning.

 

  • The process is estimated to take 2 – 2.5 weeks:
    • Noise will be mitigated through the entire process.
    • Ongoing air monitoring surveillance will continue until the hangar site has been completely remediated by the U.S. Navy.
  • Tackifier application to the hangar site was completed on December 3.

SAMPLING AND REMEDIATION PROCCESS 

Below is a step-by-step process for how our teams will respond to reported debris: 

  1. Your report will be assigned to a Certified Asbestos Consultant (CAC) schedule an onsite inspection of your residence or business.


                       2. *The CAC or Certified Site Surveillance Technician (CSST) will visit your home to collect a sample of the debris to be sent off-site for testing. You will be contacted to confirm                                        whether the debris is Asbestos Containing Material (ACM).

                       3. *If the debris tests positive for asbestos, an ACM Remediation Team will be assigned to return to your home to clean-up the debris. Upon completion of the clean-up, a separate                                  team will return to your residence or business to confirm a successful remediation of the area. 



                                               *PLEASE NOTE THAT STEPS 2 AND 3 MAY BE COMPLETED SIMULTANEOUSLY.


                      4. You will be asked by the CAC or CSST to sign a release of liability. This form solely provides consent for the teams to access your private property to investigate and remediate any                             suspected material. Please refer to the “Private Property Consent and Waiver Process” document available at the following link: https://www.tustinca.org/1484/Private-Property- Consent-and-Waiver-Proc.
