Puente Hills Intermodal Facility EIR

As part of our 20-plus years as the environmental consultant for the City of Industry, PlaceWorks prepared environmental analyses for this component of a fully integrated waste-by-rail system from LA County to a remote landfill. The PHIMF will accommodate two trains a day and up to 8,000 tons per day on 17 acres. Because of widespread community opposition, the EIR was noticed and distributed on a massive scale. Areas of controversy—and more focused examination—were air quality, noise, and traffic. We conducted detailed health risk and noise assessments to support the environmental analysis.
