Temporary Resident Relocation
On April 26, 2005, EPA signed an Action Memorandum to request and document approval for a temporary relocation action for the North Ridge Estates (NRE) Asbestos Site, Klamath Falls, Klamath County, Oregon. This relocation was voluntary for residents, but EPA believed it was appropriate for immediate reduction of the risk to the public and the environment from the uncontrolled release of asbestos at the Site. The temporary relocation occured between June 10 and September 10, 2005. This time period encompassed summer vacation when all of children at the site would have been at home and the climate at the site was at its driest and windiest. This was also the period during which most assessment and removal activity was expected to occur.
