A rocket-fuel component found in a Saugus water well means contamination
from the Whittaker-Bermite site has spread farther than earlier thought,
a water official said Wednesday during a community meeting.

But the finding isn?t surprising, since test wells sunk in the same
general area have also come up positive for perchlorate, officials said.

?Obviously, it?s a little wider than we thought,? Santa Clarita Water
Division General Manager Bill Manetta said of the contamination, which
has spread in groundwater from the former munitions-manufacturing site
near Saugus Speedway into the Santa Clara River and downstream.
