Hawthorne Elementary School Relocation Noise and Risk Assessments

PlaceWorks completed noise and vibration studies and rail and health risk assessments for this Riverside Unified School District school based on its proximity to major railroad tracks (including two at-grade crossings), freeway, and electric substation. We determined that the site would not meet current CDE site standards, and a summary report was prepared for the Office of Public School Construction to consider relocating the school. OPSC agreed to fund the school’s relocation and PlaceWorks completed the CEQA and risk assessment work for the new school site as well.
