Marinwood Residents Demand the immediate cleanup of the Toxic Waste at Marinwood Plaza (9 min)
Marinwood Residents demand the immediate clean up of the Toxic Waste Hotspot at the former Prosperity Cleaners at the California Regional Water Quality Control Board in Oakland, CA on March 8, 2016. The former Prosperity Cleaners is located in Marinwood Plaza at 187 Marinwood Ave in San Rafael, CA . No active clean up has occurred since 2011 when the discharger, Marinwood Plaza LLC was allowed to suspend clean up while it was trying to sell the property. In the mean time, the toxic plume has spread 1/2 mile to the East and is not even fully defined. Toxic soil vapors threaten neighboring residents. Marinwood Plaza submitted an incomplete clean up plan to the board on December 28, 2015 . Residents demand immediate removal of the source contamination while plans for full remediation are created.
