Where are Kettleman City and the Kettleman Hills Facility? 

Kettleman City, an unincorporated community of about 1,620 residents, is located just east of I-5 and the California Aqueduct in an agricultural and oil- and gas-producing region of Kings County midway between Los Angeles and the Bay Area.  State Route 41 also runs through Kettleman City.

Kettleman Hills Facility is a fully permitted, 1,600 acre hazardous waste treatment, storage and disposal facility located 3.5 miles southwest of Kettleman City.  I-5, the California Aqueduct and a range of hills called the North Kettleman Dome run between Kettleman City and the Kettleman Hills Facility. In 2008 Waste Management applied to the Department of Toxic Substances Control (DTSC) to expand a hazardous waste cell from 53 to 67 acres within the facility’s existing footprint.
