n.d.

Abstract
Environmental justice is one of several priorities for EPA’s Pacific Southwest Region and supports the
Administrator’s theme of making a visible difference in communities. In 2014, the Region transitioned from a
core EJ team to a model where each Division is responsible for integrating EJ into its work through
participation in a regional EJ Network. The network develops and follows through on shared commitments in
places and projects. The plan is informed by opportunities to implement tools and approaches resulting from
EPA’s Plan EJ 2014, such as our permitting and enforcement initiatives and the use of EPA’s nationally
consistent screening tool for EJ, EJSCREEN.

Abstract
This fact sheet is intended to inform the community about the progress of environmental cleanup at areas of the
former McClellan Air Force Base (AFB) that are undergoing “privatized” cleanup. At McClellan AFB, “privatization”
involves the Department of Defense providing funds to another party to conduct environmental cleanup.
Along with the transfer of cleanup responsibilities, DOD transfers ownership of the property. McClellan Business Park
(MBP), the developer and new owner of several areas of property at McClellan AFB, is responsible for conducting the
environmental cleanup under the oversight of the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), the California
Department of Toxic Substances Control and the Central Valley Regional Water Quality Control Board.
