Subject: [CPEO-MEF] Rancho Palos Verdes (CA) Nike site
RPV studies Nike site for center

Environmental report shows contamination on the missile silo land, but
not enough to stop art, civic facility.

An environmental study of an old Nike missile silo in Rancho Palos
Verdes where a nonprofit group hopes to build an art center revealed no
significant problems that could derail the proposal, officials say.

However, the study turned up evidence of heavy metals, as many as three
underground 8,000-gallon steel gas tanks, oil in a hydraulic lift used
to raise the missiles, asbestos, lead-based paint and mold.

But City Manager Les Evans said none of the heavy metals -- barium,
cadmium and chromium -- was found in concentrations that could endanger
human health.
