Subject: [CPEO-MEF] Perchlorate in well water at Santa Clarita (CA) development
Perchlorate in well water
Chemical find unlikely to alter West Creek

SANTA CLARITA -- Perchlorate has been found in water in one of the
supply wells intended to serve a proposed 2,200-home community, county
and development officials said this week.

The discovery was made in April during a routine analysis of the water
by the Valencia Water Co., in a well that is adjacent to the planned
West Creek housing development site. The well is east of Bouquet Creek
and the Santa Clara River.

An environmental impact report for the 2,200-home project on 996 acres
in unincorporated northern Valencia was certified by the Los Angeles
County Board of Supervisors in March. The Newhall Land and Farming
Company is the developer.
