Flaring at Chevron in Richmond

Last updated: 10 p.m. Thursday, December 18, 2014

The flaring has currently stopped at Chevron in Richmond but there may be intermittent flaring this evening. Flaring is a controlled burn off of gas. Our Hazardous Materials staff assessed the situation and determined a shelter-in-place was not needed.

Be Smarter, Drink Water

Between 2013-2014, a collaborative consisting of the City of Richmond, Youth Enrichment Strategies and Building Blocks for Kids installed several water stations in Richmond as part of the Be Smarter Drink Water campaign. The project is no longer operating in Richmond and has plans to expand to other parts of Contra Costa County.
