Subject: [CPEO-MEF] Rialto (CA) perchlorate state of emergency?
Rialto's toxic perchlorate plume may prompt emergency decree

Riverside Press-Enterprise (CA)
August 30, 2007

SACRAMENTO - Rialto officials will consider declaring a local state of emergency in an attempt to get state aid to clean up a steadily moving perchlorate plume.

Aides to Gov. Schwarzenegger suggested the action during a meeting Wednesday in which Rialto leaders said perchlorate contamination poses a growing threat to the city's drinking water.

Both sides will follow up early next month.

Rialto leaders have become increasingly frustrated with delays in getting cleanup funds from the alleged sources of the underground pollution. The city has spent more than $18 million on legal fees, special water-filtering systems and other costs, and still lacks a cleanup order.
