Toxic Seepage Worries Norco

Dozens of families in one of the fastest-growing pockets of Riverside
County have for years questioned whether toxic chemicals from a military
contractor's former facility in Norco are seeping beneath their
neighborhoods and causing serious health problems.

After filing lawsuits and lobbying City Hall and Sacramento for help,
they now have some definitive answers.

Tests by state environmental officials recently found that high levels
of pollution had migrated from beneath Wyle Laboratories' testing site
to the neighboring community, although state officials were careful to
say that they had no evidence that the contamination posed a significant
health threat.

Still, residents now suing Wyle and a homebuilder said the findings
showed the need for more aggressive testing by the state.
