About 430 community members, workers and their families were treated to a tour of the Chevron Richmond Refinery on Saturday, the company said Monday.
Community Tour Day was meant to provide community members and other interested parties a chance to visit the 2,900-acre refinery and get an up-close view of Chevron’s operations.
Residents learned more about the company’s air monitoring and safety inspection programs and also how the fuel cleansing additive Techron was developed in Richmond.
After the tour visitors got to grub on free barbecue food at Up and Under Pub in Point Richmond.
Chevron Richmond officials say the tour is meant to foster transparency and an open dialogue with the Richmond community.
