Ordnance cleanup to start soon|
BY ALEX DOBUZINSKIS LA Daily News December 13, 2006
VALENCIA - Clearance of unexploded ordnance soon will start on the Whittaker-Bermite property, as cleanup of the former weapons manufacturing site continues to ready it for eventual development.
"I expect we'll find an odd item here and there, but I don't believe we'll find a large quantity" of ordnance, said John Naginis, a geologist with the state Department of Toxic Substances Control.
Naginis was speaking Tuesday at a community meeting to provide an update on cleanup of the 996-acre Whittaker-Bermite site, which is located in the center of Santa Clarita.
Officials think only 20 acres to 30 acres of the property could hold unexploded ordnance, but if they find indications the problem is more widespread, they'll expand their clearance sweep.
