Tertiary butyl alcohol was detected in groundwater in concentrations up to 7,000 ug/L, and has attenuated to 24 ug/L. The current site conditions do not pose a threat to human health or the environment, and the unauthorized release case can be closed. The case files are available for public review by submitting a file review request to the San Diego Water Board office, or on-line from the Geotracker Database. Provided no significant issues arise during the public notification period, the San Diego Water Board will issue a no further action letter after June 9, 2010. (Susan Pease)
