My name is Rik Williams and I am Chevron’s remediation project manager at the San Luis Obispo Tank Farm site. I work closely with my colleague, Bill Almas, who manages redevelopment on the site. Bill and I are excited to be moving ahead with plans to revitalize the property. This website is designed to provide information to keep you informed about our progress. We welcome your participation.

After years of working on plans for the future use of our SLO Tank Farm Road property, the project’s Final Environmental Impact Report (FEIR) was released in early January 2014. The proposal for the 332-acre Chevron Tank Farm Road site includes 250+ acres of open space, new recreation areas and trails, a business park, land for sports fields, and site remediation and restoration. We are excited to be sharing our vision and hope you will agree it is a good plan for one of San Luis Obispo’s most important corridors. The FEIR can be found at the City website.  In addition, the Regional Water Quality Control Board for the Central Coast will approve the Remedial Action Plan (RAP) mid-year 2014.  The original RAP, submitted in 2007, is posted on the RWQCB SLO Tank Farm Geotracker website.  This RAP is currently being updated and will be posted on Geotracker upon RWQCB approval.

Also, the City of SLO Planning Commission Hearing on 12/11/13 recently discussed the Tank Farm Road site in a staff report that is available for your review. Upcoming meetings and hearings which may discuss specific aspects of the SLO Tank Farm Road property include the February 19 Airport Land Use Commission meeting and the May 6 San Luis Obispo City Council meeting. Our project website, www.slotankfarm.com, will be updated as we move forward. Please contact me via the email address below if you are a member of an organization that would like a presentation about our proposed plans.
