Army Corps of Engineers Remedial Investigation and Feasibility Study Information
We have been notified that the US Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) is conducting a Remedial Investigation and Feasibility Study (RI/FS) at Formerly Used Defense Site Former (FUDS) project at Irvine Park – Army Camp (MRS01 – Range Complex), FUDS Project # J09CA712901 which includes some parcels within the Santiago Geologic Hazard Abatement District (GHAD). The US Army Corps of Engineers completed a Site Inspection (SI) in 2011 and as a result it was decided to perform further site investigation under Remedial Investigation and Feasibility Study (RI/FS). In order for the US Army Corps of Engineers to perform proper RI/FS in the area, they may seek permission to enter private property. If the USACE decides to conduct any investigation on parcels after obtaining the property owner’s permission, some soil samples (small amount) will be taken from undeveloped/un-landscaped area in their property. As indicated, the sampling will not be very intrusive. Below is more information regarding the US Army Corps of Engineers’ work in this area. The Santiago GHAD is providing this notification for information only and is not involved in any of the investigation activities.

Board of Directors
During the 2022 election cycle, three Board of Director positions were eligible for election. Only one Director submitted candidacy for reelection and one property owner within the GHAD submitted candidacy for one of the positions, leaving one position vacant. The property owner rescinded candidacy, therefore two positions were vacant leading up to the 2022 election. Since the number of candidates who applied was less than the number of eligible positions, only one director was appointed, and two positions remained vacant. Furthermore, since one candidate submitted and then rescinded candidacy, that position can only be filled by election in 2024, while the other position that did not receive any candidates can be appointed by the Orange County Board of Supervisors. On August 8, 2023, the Orange County Board of Supervisors appointed Marc Schwering to serve as a Board of Director for the Santiago GHAD.
In the 2024 election cycle, three Board of Director positions will be eligible for election.
