Protecting Our Bay
Soil and Sediment Remediation
The Port of San Diego's Environmental Protection Department supports the Port's internal departments (Real Estate, Engineering, Safety and Marine Operations) on various environmental matters. These departments periodically have projects which require environmental services for:
- Real estate acquisition, lease termination or establishing baseline conditions at lease commencement; and
- Public Works and General Services projects where the presence of subsurface contamination requires special environmental precautions.
In addition environmental regulatory agencies periodically issue orders which require environmental investigations or other activities which the Environmental Protection Department implements including:
- Investigations and remedial action for contaminated soil, groundwater or sediment;
- Oversight of tenant environmental projects.
As appropriate, the Port obtains professional services to complete these projects through on-call environmental investigation and emergency response/hazardous waste disposal agreements, through a Request for Proposal process, or through public works contracts through the District's Engineering/Facilities department.
