Asbestos Exposure in El Segundo, CA

Located on the Santa Monica Bay, El Segundo is one of the beach cities of Los Angeles County in California and part of the South Bay Cities Council of Governments. Incorporated in 1917, El Segundo spans over five square miles and is home to approximately 16,600 people. The city earned its name El Segundo (Spanish for "the second") because it was the site of the second Standard Oil refinery (renamed Chevron in 1984) on the West Coast. El Segundo has transitioned from being a predominantly blue-collar 'company town' to a 'corporate' town where the tax base relies on a non-resident working population. Pollution and toxic waste cleanup remain an issue as the city of El Segundo converts industrial sites to shopping malls and sports facilities.

Recognized as a major aeronautical and industrial business center, El Segundo has many aviation-related and petroleum-related industries and operations. Some of the major aerospace companies with facilities in El Segundo include Boeing, Raytheon, Lockheed Martin, Northrop Grumman, and The Aerospace Corporation. In addition to the Chevron oil refinery, El Segundo is also home to the El Segundo power plant and adjacent to the Hyperion sewage treatment plant. El Segundo is also home to the Los Angeles Air Force Base, and the Space and Missile Systems Center (SMC), which is responsible for space-related acquisition for the military.

El Segundo’s history of industry makes exposure to asbestos an issue. Workers, oil refinery workers and aeronautical engineers in particular, exposed to asbestos may be at risk for developing an asbestos related cancer.
