My name is Leslie Klinchuch and I have gotten to know the Fillmore community well in my 10 years as Chevron’s Environmental Project Manager at the former Pacific Coast Pipeline/Fillmore Works site. We have been working under the direction of the US EPA to remediate the site following years of oil operations. I am pleased to share that soil cleanup standards have been met and the property is now ready for redevelopment. We are also making good progress on the ongoing groundwater remediation.

A century after operations first began at Fillmore Works, we are proposing the property be used with new era energy development. Chevron is pleased to announce plans to develop a solar project at the site.

This website is designed to provide information to keep you informed about our progress. We welcome your participation.
