Regardless, they were there first. The rest of it is bureaucratic bullish#t.
Edit to add: Stil an interesting post.
For 100 years, people, mostly blacks, have lived next door to the booming Chevron Richmond Refinery built by Standard Oil, a plant so huge it can process 240,000 barrels of crude oil a day. Hundreds of tanks holding millions of barrels of raw crude dot 2,900 acres of property on a hilly peninsula overlooking the Pacific Ocean and San Francisco Bay. Five thousand miles of pipeline there move gasoline, jet fuel, diesel and other chemical products.
During World War II, African Americans like Clark's family moved to homes in the shadow of this refinery because they had nowhere else to go. Coming to California looking for opportunity, they quickly learned that white neighborhoods and subdivisions didn't want them
the barrels would be harmless by now the real danger would be if dioxins bonded to the soil. Cleanup would involve taking away dirt to a depth of 6ft. Then it would need tobe heated to 4000 degrees. To destroy the dioxins id say well outside what a typical company could handle.

They mention it they got it tested.
If it is agent orange, it appears it's long gone as the grass around the barrels is doing quite well
