Subject: [CPEO-MEF] Removing alleged Navy waste from Norco (CA) school site
Soil removed from school site

NORCO - Corona-Norco Unified School District has spent close to $1million to clean up soil allegedly contaminated by the Navy on property proposed for a new high school.

Arsenic, lead, dioxin and other contaminants were detected during a 2002 soil analysis of the 6.5-acre property on Third Street, on the campus of Riverside Community College. The property is the future site of John F. Kennedy High School.

From 1947 through the early 1970s, the Navy operated an incinerator, landfill and burn pits on the property, generating waste, said Andrew Sterner, construction manager for the school district.

School officials are waiting for results from soil samples taken two weeks ago, after the last of 10,000 tons of contaminated dirt was hauled away March 10 to the Azusa Land Reclamation, a contaminated material processing center. The cleanup cost the district about $900,000.
