Badger Pass, Mitigate Soil Contamination

Yosemite National Park » Badger Pass, Mitigate Soil Contamination » Document List

When the project is complete, DNC will have completed three soil borings to collect soil samples identifying the extent of soil and/or groundwater contamination at the Badger Pass Ski Area. In October 2005, during the excavation of two footings associated with the walkway between the Ski Lodge and the Ski Rental Shop, discolored soil and a sheen were visible on the soil and groundwater within the footings excavation. DNC notified the National Park Service, Mariposa County and the Regional Water Quality Control Board. A leak report was submitted on December 14, 2005, following confirmation of soil impacts.
