Legal Settlement Reached in Teledyne Ryan Cleanup

Cleanup of a 44-acre factory site near Lindbergh Field will proceed under a legal settlement reached among the San Diego County Regional Airport Authority, the San Diego Unified Port District and Pittsburgh-based Allegheny Technologies/Teledyne Ryan Inc. and subsidiaries.

Teledyne-Ryan used hazardous materials on the site during decades of aerospace manufacturing.

The deal, announced March 28, settles a federal lawsuit over the matter.

The site, which includes an area named Convair Lagoon, had been an aerospace factory from 1938 to 2002. In 2004, the California Regional Water Quality Control Board ordered Allegheny Technologies/Teledyne Ryan Inc. to clean up hazardous substances on the site, and amended that order in 2005. Allegheny challenged the orders.

“The settlement agreement is significant because it requires an expedited cleanup for these contaminated sites,” said a statement released by the airport authority.

Additionally, the deal provides for the demolition of buildings on the site.
