NORCO: Tests ordered by attorneys near Wyle Laboratories show elevated pollutant levels.

NORCO - Three homeowners near Wyle Labs who sought their own tests for pollution found indoor contamination in a neighborhood that state regulators earlier dismissed as being of little health concern.

Lawyers representing Wyle-area homeowners in a class-action lawsuit against home builders Western Pacific submitted the tests to Riverside County Superior Court this week in an effort to prove that contamination from the former hazardous testing facility is hurting property values in the Hidden Valley neighborhood south of Wyle.

Air samples taken from inside three homes along El Paso Drive tested positive for elevated levels of the same cancer-causing chemicals found in the ground and water at the Wyle property.

Until now, officials with the Department of Toxic Substances Control have been focusing their efforts to track the toxic plume in the neighborhood northwest of Wyle. The latest findings could warrant further testing around homes and schools south of Wyle, residents said.
