Subject: [CPEO-MEF] Vapor extraction planned at Wyle's Norco (CA) site
Installation to begin this winter for areas near former site

NORCO - Wyle Labs will install a system this winter to clean up chemical
vapors found in the soil between its property boundary and Golden West
Lane, said officials from the state Department of Toxic Substances
Control on Monday.

Vapors are rising from contaminated groundwater in the area with the
potential to affect the air in homes on the quiet residential street,
according to a report from the department, which falls under the
California Environmental Protection Agency.

The main chemical of concern is trichloroethylene, a cancer-causing
industrial solvent that the state believes migrated from Wyle Labs.

TCE was first discovered in low levels last year in the ground outside
three homes in the 2200 block of Golden West Lane. The properties sit at
the bottom of a hill, separated by a fence from Wyle Labs, a high-tech
testing and engineering company that used its 425-acre Norco site for
more than 50 years to test products such as rocket fuel and electronics.
