Land use in the immediate vicinity includes field crop agriculture, a golf course, orchards, vineyards, and wooded areas. The nearest residences are situated several hundred feet from the site. Approximately 125 people reside within one mile of the site, and about 5,700 people live within three miles of the contamination area.
