State seeks further contamination tests at Santa Clarita sites BY JUDY O'ROURKE Los Angeles Daily News September 4, 2007SANTA CLARITA - State regulators overseeing pollution tests at two Santa Clarita sites say they have found only minor contamination at one property but landowners have been slow in responding to requests for further tests.
A small area of pollution was found at the site of National Technical Systems, a defense contractor that for years conducted secret testing in what is now the burgeoning center of town, officials said.
"They found minor soil contamination outside a chemical storage area and the investigation is complete. We have no issues," said Jose Diaz, a project manager for the Department of Toxic Substances Control.
National Technical Systems split its 150-acre parcel for the testing and officials said one cubic yard of soil was found to be polluted in a 120-acre section that was listed for sale by the company last year.
Still, preliminary tests by the department in 2003 found perchlorate in soil at the site, and officials said the remaining untested section - known as the "lab property" - is a concern.
