Shell Oil Co blasted by City Officials and Law Firm

City officials and a law firm representing homeowners in the Carousel housing tract in Carson on Monday blasted Shell Oil Co.’s proposed plan to clean up petroleum-contaminated soil in the neighborhood. “It’s a joke,” said Tom Girardi, whose firm is suing Shell on behalf of hundreds of Carousel tract residents and the city. “We know positively without a doubt that all the benzene and oil products go down to 28 feet. “They’re disgusting. Despicable. There will be no settlement. We want a jury to look at this.”

City officials and a law firm representing homeowners in the Carousel housing tract in Carson on Monday blasted Shell Oil Co.’s proposed plan to clean up petroleum-contaminated soil in the neighborhood.

Shell has proposed cleaning the top three feet of soil across most of the 50-acre site over a two-year period, ignoring a directive from the county’s oversight agency — in its Regional Action Plan released March 10 — to clean the top 10 feet.

“It’s a joke,” said Tom Girardi, whose firm is suing Shell on behalf of hundreds of Carousel tract residents and the city. “We know positively without a doubt that all the benzene and oil products go down to 28 feet. I think they already took three feet off when they developed the property.

“They’re disgusting. Despicable. There will be no settlement. We want a jury to look at this.”
