Comment period

Xytec Clorox, Lakewood

Third Periodic Review available for comment

Nov. 2, 2023 - Dec. 3, 2023, 11:59 p.m.

We review conditions at sites where some contamination remains about every five years, to make sure the cleanup is still effective.

Our review of the Xytec Clorox Lakewood site shows that the cleanup is still effectively protecting human health and the environment.

We will review all comments received during the comment period. We finalize the periodic review if no significant changes are made.

We will hold a public meeting if 10 people request one.


In 1993, Chlorox dug up 1,550 tons of contaminated soil and sent them for thermal treatment, which burns the petroleum out of the soils. Chlorox then filled in the area with clean soils and covered it with an asphalt cap. However, some petroleum contamination remains in the soil, under the cap. The site has what we call a "restrictive covenant." It requires current and future property owners to take care of the cap and inform anyone leasing space in the buildings.
