What’s Happening: ECI Property Updates

We have been working alongside the DTSC as well as the US EPA on the status of the voluntary cleanup that is currently underway at Ecology Control Industries (ECI), Inc, a property that is directly south of our community and part of the historic stormwater pathway for Montrose Operable Unit 6. ECI has engaged in a voluntary excavation of DDT-contaminated soils on their property, and are currently storing the excavated soils on site in (mostly) covered stockpiles.

We remain concerned about two critical issues as ECI continues cleanup, storage, maintenance, and other activities at their site: 1) Given the proximity of the ECI property and adjacent residential units, we want to ensure that these activities are not posing a threat to nearby populations via fugitive dust from the soil piles, as well as odors, noise, and other nuisances originating from the site. 2) A proposed zoning change is in the works for this property and is currently under review with the LA County Department of Regional Planning. The DAAC is concerned about any land use changes implemented in the community without understanding the implications these may have for the immediate and long-term welfare of residents in and around the Del Amo/Montrose neighborhood. As this process moves forward, we invite you to visit our ECI page for more details and documents, and view the photo collections we have put together for reference. Below are direct links to some of the key documents for ECI.
