New phase begins for water cleanup|
SAN BERNARDINO: Five wells are readied to join the effort to extract contaminating solvents.
By CHRIS RICHARD Riverside Press-Enterprise (CA) March 23, 2005
Officials will dedicate a system of pumps and filtration tanks to remove industrial solvents from San Bernardino's water supply Thursday, marking a turning point in a cleanup effort spanning two decades.
"We've devoted countless hours to trying to advocate on our own behalf to the EPA and to the federal government to make sure they knew how important the system was to San Bernardino," said Stacey Aldstadt, deputy general manager of the city's water department. "To say that this was our No. 1 priority is probably a vast understatement."
In addition to drinking-water supplies for 160,000 San Bernardino residents, the cleanup affects water sources for about 600,000 people in San Bernardino and Riverside counties.
