Hundreds question toxic risk
EPA meeting airs community fears
By Gabe Friedman

Hundreds of concerned, fearful and angry Mountain View residents turned
out at a Wednesday meeting to question federal officials on the dangers
of citywide toxic gas exposure.

The gathering at the Mountain View Community Center came in the wake of
a U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) announcement that the toxin
trichloroethene (TCE) -- leaked into Mountain View's ground water by
microchip factories -- is 60 to 70 times more toxic than thought, and is
present in the city's air.
