SUPPLEMENT 3

Administrative Record Index

To request copies of administrative record documents, an electronic order form is available.


This administrative record file contains the documents that the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is currently using to identify appropriate remedial activities for the Beckman Instruments, Inc. Superfund Site, in Porterville, California. It is presented in two media: the Compact Disk (CD) which contains the most recent supplement and the microfilm which contains the original compilation and first two supplements. The administrative record file will be supplemented periodically; it will be complete after public comments on EPA's Proposed Plan, EPA's response to comments, and the Record of Decision (ROD) Amendment are included.

The administrative record supplements the Record of Decision (ROD) dated September 26, 1989 (AR# 403). Copies of the guidance documents considered or relied upon in the selection of the remedy are contained in the Compendium of CERCLA Response Selection Guidance Documents located in the Region 9 Superfund Records Center.

The original compilation, arranged in ascending chronological order, contains documents AR1 - AR214 and was released to the public on September 20, 1988. Supplement 1 was compiled on June 15, 1989 and following the numbering convention at the time, the document numbering sequence was started over. Therefore, Supplement 1 contains documents numbered AR1 - AR131. Supplement 2, compiled on October 6, 1989, contains documents AR132 - AR403.

The administrative record and first two supplements were microfilmed on January 24, 1994. The index binder presents the documents in the same order as the microfilmed copy. The binder contains a separate index of the documents on CD.

EPA welcomes questions and comments on documents contained in the administrative record file. Please contact:
